Waters Announces American Financial Technology Awards 2011 Finalists


For the seventh year, the editors of Waters have sifted through the nominations—our largest pool yet—for the American Financial Technology Awards to determine which financial technology teams stood out from the crowd in terms of skill, ingenuity and dedication.

Bearing out the African proverb that calm seas don’t made good sailors, the rough global economy has produced a host of talented financial technologists, based on the number and caliber of the nominations this year. As such, it was challenging to winnow the entries to just three in each of the 12 categories, but we managed to do it, and we thank everyone who took the time submit nominations.

Without further ado, Waters is pleased to present the 2011 American Financial Technology Awards finalists. The winners will be announced during the awards banquet on Dec. 5 in Manhattan.
