Twenty-seven categories are up for grabs, including new awards for OTC clearing service of the year and OTC trading platform of the year
Every January, Risk magazine's awards recognise firms and individuals which have distinguished themselves in the derivatives markets and the risk management space - but the process leading up to those awards begins now.
The magazine asks firms to make submissions in the categories for which they would like to be considered, by 6pm UK time on Monday, September 26.
Click on the link below for more detailed guidelines and a list of the 27 awards, which this year includes two new categories - OTC clearing service of the year and OTC trading platform of the year.
The 2011 awards named Deutsche Bank as overall derivatives house of the year - for its efforts in reshaping its business and fostering a more client-centred culture. Deutsche also won bank risk manager of the year and three other categories.
Barclays Capital picked up the rates house award - in part for the leadership it showed around the shift to mandatory central clearing for over-the-counter derivatives.
Paulson & Co won hedge fund of the year on the back of strong performance for its flagship funds. John Hull picked up the lifetime achievement award, and Vladimir Piterbarg of Barclays Capital was Risk's quant of the year.
