Leaders in Trading 2023: Editors’ Choice Awards shortlists revealed

In an exceptionally strong selection for 2023, the shortlists represent the pick of the litter as decided by The TRADE’s editorial judging panel.

By Editors

Following an extensive and lengthy selection process over the Summer, The TRADE is delighted to announce the shortlists for the Leaders in Trading Editors’ Choice Awards 2023.

For the first time ever, we invited the industry to have their say and submit suggestions for the 2023 Editors’ Choice shortlists and the editorial team were humbled to see so many complimentary and celebratory nominations pouring in to aid them in their decision.

The mainstay awards of the Editors’ Choice segment are back again: Outstanding Exchange Group, Dark Trading Venue, Fixed Income Trading Venue, FX Trading Venue, Derivatives Exchange Group, and Post-Trade Services Provider.

Also returning are Outstanding Market Data Provider, Alternative Liquidity Provider and Trading Technology Provider and new category to last year Outstanding Innovation in Fixed Income.

In addition we have added three new categories for 2023. These include Sell-Side Market Structure Excellence (to recognise those firms most dedicated to supporting their clients through the ever-shifting regulatory landscape), Best Broker Electronic Trading Initiative (to reward those sell-side desks most committed to developing their electronic offering to meet client demand) and Best Innovation at the Close (to celebrate those venues who have been most innovative and collaborative with the industry in light of the shift to the final portion of the trading day).

Introduced for Leaders in Trading 2022, the vote for the Industry Person of the Year 2023 will once again be opened up to a public vote on the awards night, so keep your eyes peeled for imminent shortlists.

Winners will be revealed at The TRADE’s gala awards ceremony at The Savoy Hotel on 8 November 2023, alongside our other prestigious awards including EMS, Algorithmic Trading and Buy-Side categories, so be sure to reserve your place for an unforgettable evening.
