Global Custodian is pleased to reveal the Editors’ Choice shortlists for its inaugural Leaders in Custody awards for Asia Pacific, to be held at Raffles in Singapore on 25 May.
The Editors’ Choice categories cover the areas of the market not reached by our annual surveys, primarily covering global custodians, fintechs and market infrastructures through recognising products, projects and innovation.
All nominations are for those organisations with roots in the APAC region, or servicing clients, launching projects or collaborating throughout Asia, Australasia, or – in only a handful of cases – the Middle East.
There are multiple nominations within the Editors’ Choice categories for Citi, DBS, Euroclear, FNZ, HSBC, METACO, Proxymity and State Street. Meanwhile, BlackRock, BNY Mellon, Clearstream, DTCC, Komainu, Standard Chartered, UBS and Zodia Custody also earned a shortlist spot.
The categories cover asset servicing deals, initiatives and collaborations, along with fintech and digital asset initiatives.
Winners will be announced on 25 May at the awards ceremony at Raffles, Singapore. The shortlist for our survey-based awards has already been published, while our Innovation and Individual honours will be announced on the evening.
