Derivatives Global Awards

  • Effective risk management assumed even greater importance over the last 12 months as Asian market participants sought help navigating upheaval in global markets.
  • GlobalCapital revealed the winners of its Global Derivatives Awards for 2021 on Wednesday night at a gala event in London
  • Many law firms claim, but few can demonstrate truly global connectivity and collaboration between partners and practice areas in parallel with the provision of deep financial markets experience and expertise across transactional, product and regulatory issues.
  • On a number of fronts, Eurex excelled in its support of, and offering to, the derivatives market in the past year. It demonstrated its strength as Europe’s largest and one of the world’s leading derivatives exchanges, and an ability to innovate and push forward new segments in risk transfer markets.
  • Across several areas of the interest rate derivatives business, Nomura distinguished itself from the competition in the past year, not only stepping in to provide clients with crucial liquidity, but also supporting them with a valuable mix of timely and authoritative advice and market-leading structuring and execution capabilities.
  • According to technology consultant Celent, conventional rules-based paradigms of approaching risk and compliance obligations have given way to risk-based approaches where greater supervision intensity is placed on high risk or systemically important financial institutions, appropriate conduct, and emergent systemic risks.
  • Tradeweb is the winner of this GlobalCapital’s OTC trading venue of the year award in what has been an extraordinary time for electronic trading. During the stressed market conditions of spring, Tradeweb stayed committed to innovating and creating efficiencies for its clients, which made it a clear winner of this category. While this award recognises Tradeweb’s achievements in derivatives, its presence in Treasuries, mortgages and exchange traded fund markets should be noted too, especially as much of its recent work has focussed on creating efficiencies across these product lines.
  • ESG derivatives have been on the development fast track this year as product creation has swept from equity referencing contracts through to other asset classes. Ross Lancaster reports on the next steps the market must take to reach maturity.
  • The violent sell-off across financial markets this spring turned many investors’ positions upside down. Those without proper hedges in place were at best left embarrassed and at worst forced to shut up shop. Despite central banks once again intervening, plenty are finding reason to be cautious. Ross Lancaster investigates what lessons, if any, market participants have learnt from the meltdown.
  • Playing to its strengths as a top trading house across both flow market making and structured products, Nomura stands out for its consistency, global offering and appetite for risk taking.
  • Tradeweb’s commitment to connecting people and markets by bridging liquidity pools and its work on boosting analytics to help new asset classes prepare for electronification set it apart from its rivals — and led to the company being named GlobalCapital’s OTC Trading Venue of the Year.
  • Ranked number one across products and regions, and with a proprietary technology platform built from scratch, Citi is positioned for a world where scale and breadth is vital — and the preserve of a handful of firms. Citi tops that pile in both flow business and structured solutions, and it has built a leading OTC clearing business to boot.
