18 Aug 2010, Nick Sawyer, Risk magazine
In January, Risk magazine will publish its annual Risk Awards, designed to recognise best practice in the risk management and derivatives markets.
There will be 27 categories ranging from Derivatives House of the Year to Deal of the Year.
We are asking firms to make submissions in the categories for which they would like to be considered. These submissions should outline details on performance and risk management, as well as case studies on key deals over the course of 2010.
The awards will be judged by an editorial panel of senior Risk editors and staff writers. Judging criteria will include (but will not necessarily be limited to): risk management, customer service, liquidity provision and quality of post-sales service. Banks outside the top three that can demonstrate giant improvements in their derivatives/risk management practices over the year will also be considered for an award.
The deadline for submissions is 6pm Monday September 27. Follow-up interviews will take place for short-listed firms during October and November. The decisions will be made in late-November.
