The Fund Technology and WSL Awards recognize and reward providers catering to asset managers and institutional traders who have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past 12 months.
Previously known as the WSL (Wall Street Letter) Institutional Trading Awards, the event will highlight the efforts of technology providers, data specialists and exchanges in meeting the needs of the wider asset management community, particularly mutual funds.
The Fund Technology and WSL Awards (formerly the Wall Street Letter Institutional Trading Awards) are designed for brokers, exchanges, technology vendors, data providers and trading platforms supporting institutional and asset management traders, who have proved themselves successful over the course of 2016/2017.
Please note that 2018 applicants will be judged based on their performance from October 31, 2016 – November 1, 2017.
An independent panel of judges made up of industry experts will judge entrants based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators.
When entering the 2018 Awards, please read through the following criteria, which detail what the judging panel will be looking for as they consider entries and select final winners.
All entry forms should be submitted by Friday December 1, 2017.
The awards will be publicized internationally in the general and specialist financial media. All finalists will be honored - and the winners announced - at a dinner on Wednesday February 7, 2018 at The Yale Club, New York.
For each category, applicants must demonstrate:
1. Client satisfaction
3. Revenue growth attributable to the product or client growth associated with the product (for new product rollouts, market penetration must be demonstrable)
