Escoffier credits customer support for SG

"It is incredible the amount of support we have received from customers recently. It is because of the size of our client base and our innovation capabilities that we won this award today," Escoffier said. He also credited other banks and financial institutions with "being very helpful and showing fair play in various capacities".

He told the audience in London that he was "saddened and angered" by the discovery of the unauthorised trades, which cost the bank €4.9 billion this month.

The Derivatives House of the Year award was collected by Bill Winters, co-chief executive of JP Morgan's investment bank.
