Markets Media Group’s Market Choice Awards (the MCAs) have been a fixture in the US calendar for a decade; they span the most important sectors of institutional trading and technology – industry leaders, buyside traders; sellside execution desks; exchanges & platforms; incumbent technology providers and emerging fintech firms.
With the formation in 2020 of Markets Media Europe, bringing into the fold both Best Execution and The DESK, we now have a much broader platform in Europe and I am delighted to announce that we are expanding the US programme and, following the success of our first European Women in Finance Awards, launching the inaugural European Markets Choice Awards (the EMCAs).
As the name suggests these awards recognise excellence in the financial sector, where the nominations are generated by the industry, for the industry. Over the coming weeks we will be giving you the chance to nominate outstanding firms, and in certain cases outstanding individuals, that have contributed something extraordinary to the industry.
We had little inkling a year ago about how challenging 2020 would be, but despite the disruption, uncertainty, and sadly for some, tragedy, the industry has stepped up and met those challenges, and we intend that this award programme will go some small way to recognise those successes.
