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.
Under the aegis of Markets Media Europe, incorporating both Best Execution and The DESK, I am delighted to announce that the expansion the US programme continues, and we will be shortly opening nominations for the second annual 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 two years ago about the challenges that would unfold, 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.
