The Waters Weekly Wrap: February 16-20, 2015

A look back at the best content published across all the Waters brands.

Coverage from cyberattacks to major partnerships.

Big news—old and mostly unremarkable news, some argue—of a major cyber attack on banks led headlines in financial technology this week.

Meanwhile, a major partnership on the buy side was finalized as Quantitative Brokers is set to lead off TT's new algo framework. And BGC got its mark as GFI stockholders finally tendered enough shares to put that acquisition saga to rest.

Also, the extended deadline for entering into this year's Sell-Side Technology Awards is February 20 at 6 p.m, so be sure to get them in. The second-annual gathering will hand out hardware for 28 different categories. Click here for more information.
