Best Emerging Markets

We have long held the belief that where the G10 markets go in terms of e-FX, so the emerging markets will follow. Thus far this has been proven in how banks have added NDFs to their pricing grids and platforms, as well as their ability to stream, in small size and generally a little wider […]

2016 Product of the Year

This award seeks to recognise new products, that while the idea behind them may not be innovative per se, they do help customers navigate the sometimes tricky waters of the FX market. This can be done by a client facing product, but as we have also acknowledged through previous winners, it can also be for […]

Best Commodities Platform

The e-commodities field remains a narrow one given several banks’ exits from the business some years ago. Just about every provider now offers precious metals trading, which is unsurprising given the similarities to foreign exchange. The second ‘C’ in FICC is very much alive, at least if you want to trade precious metals. Credit Suisse […]

Best Rates Platform

Two years ago we saw the rates space move on from a period of treading water while it waited for the US regulators in particular to make their minds up, to a fully fledged, modern, regulated market. And although a degree of uncertainty over the global nature of the new market structure still exists at […]

Best Mobile Platform

2015 was, we are confident to pronounce, the year that mobile trading finally “arrived”. Previously it has been a story of those that deliver content, those that offer “read-only” pricing and those that offer everything including execution – overlaid with client reluctance to allow all but the most trusted staff to access it. That has […]

Best FX Options Platform

We were thinking (perhaps hoping) that 2016 would be the year in which the FX options market’s structure was finally sorted out. There was optimism over the availability of clearing services, customers were more open to structured solutions for their hedging problems, and the multi-dealer world – something we consider to be important for a […]

Market View Award

This is our only new award for 2016, one that reflects the increased interest around the execution process. While we look at the overall experience in our Best Execution Award, we have been asked previously who we thought presented the best view of the market. It can be overlooked how important the actual decision making process is, not just […]

Client Experience Award

As we have suggested previously, we would like to think we have covered most aspects of the client experience when it comes to the various e-services and products on offer, indeed a read back through the last decade and more shows how the categories have changed to reflect the changing demands of the client base and, sometimes in the short […]

P&L’s One to Watch in 2016

As we have already discussed in the preamble to these awards, the rather interesting stage at which the e-FX industry finds itself means that the entire industry is probably worth watching! Innovation will come, it may be from the existing giants but it could also be from a second tier or regional bank stepping up. As we have noted repeatedly […]

Best Execution

This is a really interesting area of the FX market at the moment. Customers are studying their best execution policies and more often than not, making changes. They are also seeking help in some cases, from the banks. The problem and what makes this area so intriguing, is that due to a lack of clarity over where agency stops and […]
