Best FX Prime Brokerage

Last year we noted how competition levels in FX prime brokerage dropped sharply and expressed the hope that they soon recover, if not to prior levels then at least part of the way. Therefore it is pleasing to report that the competition seems to be at least holding steady. UBS in particular has upped its […]

Best Research Platform

At the risk of sounding like a broken record we continue to believe the appetite for research is changing. There is still interest in content, but especially in markets so skittish how users are consuming research is changing. There are two strings to this change – firstly, the more in-depth report is still popular for […]

Algo Provider of the Year

There is so much emphasis on best execution, sourcing liquidity and justifying actions in this world – most of which falls to the algo execution teams to deliver – that there is a feeling this should be our new top award! Never has the focus on algorithmic execution been so intense, which means it is […]

2016 Post-Trade Award

The post-trade space more than any other seems destined to be driven towards a utility model, which in turn means fewer opportunities for innovation and even differentiation. That said, as has been proven by our winner in this category over the past few years if you are willing to go the extra mile for your […]

Best Traders’ Platform

Traders need more information than ever before and they need it in an easy to read format, preferably on the same desktop (or mobile device) as their pricing.

We are not suggesting total abandonment of course, rather that the […]

Best Real Money Platform

The real money sector is a fascinating one at the moment, because it is at the centre of the upheaval around best execution.

Best Banks Platform

And so to our annual reminder that servicing one’s peers is always the hardest task, mainly because their background is similar, they could be potential competitors, and as far as service levels go, they are very demanding! As more banks come up the curve, so servicing this critical segment becomes even more challenging – for […]

Super Regional Award 2016

We have to repeat ourselves at the start of this award write up. There is, as we have experienced over the past two years, a degree of sensitivity over who we consider “regional” or “super regional”! Generally speaking we have sought to target this award at banks from outside the top 10 e-FX institutions that […]
