Waters Rankings 2017

Welcome to the 15th annual Waters Rankings, WatersTechnology's only awards program where the category winners are determined exclusively by our readers. This year we have 32 categories on offer, divided into five sections: Trading Services; Trading Tools; Data Management; Compliance, Risk Management and the Back Office; and Infrastructure and Connectivity.




Entry to the Waters Rankings 2017 is online only and is free to enter. Firms may enter as many categories as they wish as long as their products/services are appropriate for the each category selected.This year, firms will need to enter each individual category if they wish be considered for the win. Entry is straightforward: Simply select the appropriate category, fill out your company name, list the product or service you are entering, along with your contact details so that we can get in touch with you in the event that your organization wins.


Once we have compiled the categories - every firm entering a category, irrespective of how many they choose to enter, will feature on the category short lists, on the condition that the product/service is entered in the appropriate category - we will open the voting to our readers who have 19 working days to complete the survey. Winners will be announced at the Waters Rankings lunch on the afternoon of July 20.


Please note that entrants must provide clear details of the product(s) they are entering in each category. This is crucial so that readers know which specific product(s) they are voting for. Entries that do not disclose this information will be removed.
