For the first time, The TRADE is announcing the 2023 Rising Stars of Trading and Execution ahead of the gala awards ceremony, Leaders in Trading on 8 November.

Now in its ninth year, the Rising Stars awards scheme, in partnership with Instinet, is designed to recognise the very best up-and-coming buy-side trading professionals, and to shine a spotlight on those who have the potential to be the future leaders of the buy-side community.

The scheme has recognised numerous promising talents over the years, many of whom have gone on to expanded roles such as head of trading at some of the world’s largest asset managers and hedge funds.
