FX Week Asia Awards

 

Join us in Singapore

August 29th 2018 | The Westin Singapore

 

 

 

Important Information:

Entries open: 1st June 2018

Entries close: 6th July 2018 

 

The inaugural FX Week Asia Awards are launching to recognise the best banks, dealers, brokers and currency managers in the Asia Pacific region. While foreign exchange markets have suffered a global reputational blow as a result of the benchmark-rigging scandal, the level of impact has varied in regional centres.

As a result, FX Week would like to acknowledge and celebrate the best FX market participants in the Asia Pacific with the launch of this new set of awards, aimed specifically at the APAC region.

The awards are voting-based, meaning that clients of institutions can cast their votes across 28 categories, to select the most meaningful providers. But in contrast to our Best Banks Awards, we will only accept votes originating from clients who are based in the Asia Pacific.

The awards will be presented following our FX Week Asia event in Singapore, which will be held on August 29 at the Westin. The voting period was open from 01/06/2018 to 06/07/2018. 

We wish you the best of luck with the first FX Week Asia Awards!

The awards are voting-based, meaning that clients of institutions can cast their votes across 25 categories, to select the most meaningful providers. In contrast to our Best Banks Awards, we will only accept votes originating from clients who are based in the Asia Pacific.

Three of our awards are also accepting applications for entries. These call-for-entry categories are the Asian e-FX initiative of the year; Best currency manager in Asia Pacific and the Outstanding contribution to Asian FX markets. The latter category is open for individual nominations rather than for companies.
