Global Custodian’s Industry Awards shortlist announced

Awards evening on 29th November in New York to honour the best in fund administration, prime brokerage, custody and technology innovation.

By Global Custodian team

Global Custodian is delighted to announce the shortlist for our Industry Leaders Awards in New York on 29 November, as we celebrate the industry’s best performers in fund administration, prime brokerage, custody and technology innovation.

The awards are based on the results of Global Custodian’s market-leading surveys conducted throughout the year. Candidates for the awards are selected based on four criteria: the results of the GC McLagan surveys published in Global Custodian, the number of responses, unweighted scores for category excellence gathered in the survey process and – in the event that the other criteria result in a tie – client comment.

Three firms lead the way in terms of nominations with Apex Fund Services up for nine awards, BNP Paribas’ prime brokerage and hedge fund administration businesses in the running for a combined seven, and Trident Trust nominated for six honours.

Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley and Pershing are all shortlisted for three prime brokerage awards.

The fund administration shortlists combine hedge fund, private equity and mutual fund services. Across these fund services categories, Citco, Ultimus, Cowen and Maples are each nominated for three awards.

The mutual fund services space sees Atlantic Fund Services and Ultimus dominating the shortlists with four nominations apiece.

Under the Editors’ Choice section of our evening BNY Mellon, State Street and Northern Trust will battle it out our Global Custodian of the Year award.

We have also shortlisted BNY Mellon, Northern Trust and SS&C for Fund Services Technology Innovation, while further innovation awards are now open for nomination. Visit www.globalcustodian.com for more details on how to submit entries.

The awards will be held at Chelsea Piers on 29 November, with our annual panel discussion sessions preceding the evening’s celebrations. We will also be handing out the coveted Lifetime Achievement of the Year, along with crowning our North American Industry Person of the Year, and honouring the latest entrant to our Hall of Fame.
