Submission Details

1. Who is eligible?

The Asian Banker Financial Markets Awards 2021 is open to all financial institutions active in the financial market infrastructure space within the Asia-Pacific region. Participants operating in the pre- and post-trading landscape include but are not limited to: exchanges, alternative trading platforms, clearing houses, custodians, central security depositories, reference-data and information technology solution providers.

2. What documents do I need to submit?

We believe that all relevant information for parts 2 and 3 can be documented in 15 pages or less. As we require each entry to be strongly backed by evidence, please include supporting documents such as your institution’s financial results, media news stories, independent research organisation reports, press releases and client testimonials along with the completed questionnaires(see parts 2 and 3). A compelling submission provides clear evidence of achievement, and explains why the achievement is significant, and or why your institution outperformed its peers.

3. Can I make more than one submission?

We welcome submissions for all categories that you qualify for. Please submit separate replies to questionnaires for each of the award categories applied for.

4. Will institutions that do not make a submission be considered?

The Asian Banker may at its own discretion, strictly on a case by case basis, decide to consider institutions that do not make a submission. However, institutions that do not make a submission may have a ranking that is at variance with their expectations due to difficulties in securing full and accurate information.

5. Is the information submitted made available to the public?

All information submitted is treated with the strictest confidence and used for evaluation purposes only. The Asian Banker publishes generic reports that discuss trends and emerging best practices demonstrated through the programme. Where we deem specific submissions as being suitable for publication, we will first seek your permission before publishing them.

6. Will the detailed scores and evaluations be made available to respondents?

The detailed scoring and assessments will not be shared by The Asian Banker. However, we will issue press releases for each winner indicating why we felt the submission worthy of an award.
