Best Execution and The DESK are delighted to announce the finalists in the inaugural European Markets Choice Awards, sponsored by Instinet and Tradeweb.

The Awards recognise excellence and identify the leading companies and individuals in institutional trading and technology.

Every aspect is covered from buy and sellside execution desks, to exchanges and platforms, incumbent technology providers, regtech firms as well as up and coming fintech firms. We look at achievements over the past year, innovative contributions and future developments.

The nominations are generated by the industry, for the industry and the methodology for choosing the winners is based on reviewing submissions, industry information and consultations from a wide range of market experts.
