The leading suppliers of systems for data, market analysis, portfolio management and other categories were announced at the Systems in The City Awards 2016, which took place on the 6th of July at The Banking Hall. Since 2003 Goodacre organizes its traditional awards ceremony in recognition of the technology suppliers within the UK Financial Services Industry.
For the fourth year in a row, Web Financial Group received the recognition of the UK Financial Services Industry being awarded as “best retail banking solution”. Chris Evans, Managing Director UK of Web Financial Group, was on hand to receive the award: “we have been helping retail banks to evolve digitally for more than 15 years and this award goes a long way in recognizing the efforts of the company”
In addition, awards for exceptional performance were presented to individuals working in the sector.
JHC collected the Award for Post Trade processing while their MD John Blackman was named CEO of the Year for retaining and securing new client companies. Clearstream was recognised as providing the Best Buy Side Solution. SIX Financial Information collected the prestigious Compliance Award. Individual Awards included Lynsey Newton and Charlie Aldridge, both from Equiniti and to Jeff Plowman (Hubwise) who has completed 50 years working in the City.
Stephen Pinner, Goodacre UK’s MD commented: "Firms providing technology and support to the regulated financial sector are vital to the sector. These Awards provide deserved recognition both to companies and to individuals who work in the background and are not always recognised for the quality, ingenuity and levels of service they provide."
