The final stage of FOW's Awards for Innovation 2009 comprises two global awards: one for banks, brokers and FCMs; and one for IT and software companies.
Like the Awards for Exchanges, Clearing Houses and Law Firms
we published in November, these Awards recognise not the best
firms in particular sectors, but specific innovations that have
improved the futures and options markets.
This time, there are just two awards â€" one for
the Best Innovation by a Bank, Broker or Futures Commission
Merchant in the Field of Customer Service, and one for the Best
Innovation by an IT or Software Company.
We kept these until last because they were the most hotly
contested, with a large number of entries, putting considerable
demands on our panel of judges â€" all senior
derivatives professionals around the world.
And because of the strong field for each award, we have
published not just the winners, but the second and third-placed
innovations as well.
FOW would like to thank our expert judges, who lent
their time and expertise so generously, and all the firms that
entered for the Awards, many of which produced impressive
innovations that won support from several judges, but just not
enough to win.
