Digital FX Awards

Awards for Excellence in e-FX – BNP Paribas

Next Generation Algo Execution While there may have been some questions over the ultimate ambition BNP Paribas’ board had for its FX business, there is no doubt that execution services has been viewed favourably – and it has showed in a series of excellent product innovations and roll outs over the previous few years. This […]

The Profit & Loss Innovation Award

P&L Report Card If there is one intangible benefit in firms allocating budget to the FX businesses it is that it allows people to think innovation once more. After years of throwing resources at seemingly ever-increasing regulatory demands, there is a sense that last year – and this – the shackles are finally off and […]

Best FX Prime Brokerage

P&L Report Card This remains a strange area in many ways because while we constantly hear about clients being told they are not big enough for the prime broker to retain them, and of PBs cutting the client tail, just about every PB out there continues to affirm their commitment to building the business! Clearly […]

P&L’s One to Watch in 2019

P&L Report Card In terms of banks seeking to make a move up the e-FX ladder the field has thinned out in recent years, mainly because so many have achieved their ambition to either rebuild or to establish themselves.

With trading being pushed towards regulated entities and banks reluctant to allocate more capital to underperforming businesses, […]

Eye on the Client: The 2019 Digital FX Awards

If there was one takeaway from the demonstration sessions that form part of the process in judging these awards, it was the air of optimism amongst the bankers showing their wares. Probably for the first time in a decade just about every institution seen had budget for the coming year and, apparently, a pipeline of […]

P&L Report Card

Structured products have become mainstream with the explosion in service providers offering second generation derivatives and other yield enhancing products. Most banks now offer a reasonable range of structured products and more and more are building out the ability to create your own basket. Mainly it has to be said, we are seeing this in the FX space – we are primarily a currency and derivatives magazine after all – but there are also some looking more closely at multi-asset structured notes.
