Asia Risk Awards 2019

11 September 2019 | Marina Bay Sands, Singapore


The most prestigious recognition in Asia's derivatives markets and in risk management

The Asia Risk Awards is the longest-running and most prestigious awards for firms and individuals involved in the Asia's derivatives markets and in risk management.

The judging process takes three months, from the submission of pitch documents, through dozens of off-the-record meetings, and concludes with a due diligence phase in which clients are canvassed (also off the record) for their views on shortlisted firms.

All decisions are made by Risk’s editorial team – and each decision is explained in detail in Asia Risk magazine, and on Unlike the rest of our content, the awards articles are not pay-walled and are free to read.

This year’s awards night takes place in Singapore on September 11th. As always, it will bring together a complete cross-section of the market: sell-side salespeople and traders, buy-side portfolio and risk managers, quants, exchanges, trading platforms and clearing houses, technology firms, non-bank liquidity providers, lawyers and more – recognising their achievements, and those of the industry as a whole.
