The 2014 Buy-Side Technology Awards are now open for entries, with a closing date of Friday September 12, 2014.
Now in their eighth year, the Buy-Side Technology Awards recognize excellence among third-party providers of technology products and services to the buy side. The program operates on a call-for-entry basis across 26 categories, with a further two winners announced at a gala luncheon, held in London on November 7, 2014.
The categories run the gamut of buy-side technology, from reconciliation platforms and fund accounting software through to front-office trading technologies and advanced risk management systems. Entry to the awards is free, and is open to third-party vendors only. Sadly, we cannot accept entries from investment banks, buy-side firms, broker-dealers, prime brokerage units, analysts or consultancies. Entries can only be submitted online through our dedicated system, which can be found here.
The winners will be determined from shortlists in each category by a panel of judges, comprising buy-side executives and senior journalists from Waters magazine. The judging panel will be announced shortly.
For further information on the awards, including descriptions of each category, details on how to enter, and a list of previous winners, please visit the dedicated awards website.
A list of this year's categories can also be found below.
