American Financial Technology Awards 2015 ─ All the Winners

The winners of the AFTAs 2015 were announced on the evening of December 7 at an awards dinner in New York.

The 16 category winners of this year's AFTAs were announced on the evening of December 7 in New York.

This year's AFTAS, hosted by the diminutive (in stature only) yet inspirational ex-NBA player Muggsy Bogues, were held as usual in New York following the annual Waters USA event. This year's two individual awards ─ best technology executive (buy side) and best technology executive (sell side) ─ went to John Marcante of Vanguard Asset Management and Oliver Bussmann of UBS, respectively, while the final award of the evening for the best IT team was won by Morgan Stanley.
