In less than one month the doors of the Old Billingsgate will swing open for the largest trading event in Europe, the London Summit 2018. Ahead of the event, attendees and peers will have a chance to make their voice heard, recognizing the industry’s best in the London Summit 2018 Awards.
Every year, Finance Magnates celebrates the excelling industry participants in the key segments, by allowing the industry to cast a vote and rank the best and the brightest. We have introduced some small changes to the process, and voting for the awards starts today!
The Awards recognize a range of different performers, including best providers in liquidity, execution, trading platform, marketing and performance, and other aspects of the trading industry eco-system.
Keen observers may have noticed that the category of Institutional Liquidity Provider (bank/nonbank) has been removed. After participants expressed some uncertainty regarding in which category they belonged, we have decided to avoid further confusion and award only one ‘Best Liquidity Provider’ award this year.
A full list of categories can be viewed below:
