Risk Awards 2015: Eurex is Exchange of the Year

Decisions were tight as every year. But it was a fair process: The shortlisted companies underwent face-to-face and telephone interviews, this was supplemented by feedback from clients and other market participants. Then the final decisions were made by Risk's editors and journalists, weighing a number of factors, including risk management, creativity and innovation, liquidity provision, quality of service, and engagement with regulatory issues. In the end the decision was made: Eurex is the Exchange of the year 2015 and the prize was handed over at the  awards ceremony in Sheraton Park Lane in London on 29 January.

Last year was a difficult year for bonds, but for us it was still successful since two of our contracts - futures on Italian and French government bonds (Euro-BTP Futures and OAT Futures) – became very popular. As one senior futures sales director at a large bank put it “The OATs and the BTPs have been a huge success this year, and Eurex should be applauded for the effort it's taken to get them to this point. We use these products daily.”

“We saw pretty early, post-crisis, that there would be strong potential demand for a hedge against core European borrowing costs, once the Bund had begun to dislocate from other sovereigns," says Stuart Heath, executive director for Deutsche Börse and Eurex's London office. “We thank everyone who has voted for us and dedicate this prize to our customers.”
