Guidelines & Criteria | Asia Risk Awards 2024

What the judges are looking for:

The awards are decided by the editors and journalists of and Asia Risk magazine. Technology awards are judged by an external panel of industry experts, but the process is moderated and verified by the Asia Risk editorial team. 

Some end-user award pitching firms will be asked to set aside time for an off-the-record meeting post-submission.
We are looking for innovation and creativity from applicants, in how you address the challenges you face in trading, technology and risk management, and in how you address the challenges facing your clients.
Submissions should include case studies and examples of best practice or key deals where possible.
Key judging criteria:

  • Innovation: looking beyond the ordinary in approaching existing or new business opportunities.
  • Risk management: a clear demonstration of the sound risk management practices that lie beyond the innovation.
  • Client references and feedback: how well innovations meet client needs, including satisfaction of customer service.
  • Cross-asset structuring: mobilisation of the global markets business to move beyond a single asset class.

How does the awards process work?

Entries will open soon and will close on June 7, 2024.

For non-technology categories, the editorial team will then make a shortlist of the top candidates in each category to interview. A second round of interviews, encompassing client references where possible, will follow before the winners are announced in September.

Winners will be announced in September 25, 2024.
