Shortlist for the 16th FX Week e-FX Awards announced

FX Week is pleased to announce the shortlist for its 16th annual e-FX Awards, which recognise excellence, innovation and customer service in foreign exchange.

This year’s awards are contested across 23 submission-based categories, covering all aspects of electronic trading in currency markets. The initial field of entries comprised 137 submissions.

The awards focus on quality rather than quantity and traded volumes, and continue to attract the best in terms of companies and offerings.

This year’s judges are: 

  • Brad Bailey, research director, capital markets, Celent
  • Javier Paz, managing director and founder, Forex Datasource
  • Satnam Sohal, principal, global markets, financial services, Greenwich Associates
  • Philip Weisberg, founder, Matzliach Capital

For those making it on to the shortlist, FX Week wishes you the best of luck. To those firms that failed to progress to the next stage, better luck next year.

The winners will be recognised at a dinner held at the Metropolitan Club, following FX Week’s flagship conference in New York on July 11.
