Waters Rankings 2019

Welcome to the Waters Rankings 2019, our 17th annual survey covering the technologies and services available to the capital markets. 

Each year, we ask our readers at investment banks, asset management firms, hedge funds, brokerages and exchanges to choose their leading financial services solutions and technology providers. 

This year’s survey features 33 categories under the following five headings:
  • Trading Services
  • Trading Tools
  • Data Management
  • Compliance, Risk Management, and the Back Office
  • Infrastructure and Connectivity

This year we received over 300 submissions, some of which you will be familiar with, while others might be new to you. You do not have to check off each and every category – simply vote in those categories where your expertise and experience applies. 

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete. To help us compile the results, please enter your votes before midnight on Friday, May 24th, 2019. The results will be announced at a sit-down lunch in New York on July 10. Write-ups on each of the 33 category winners will appear online and in the September edition of WatersTechnology magazine. 

Remember, voting ends at midnight on Friday, May 31st, 2019 and is only open to those who work at asset management firms, hedge funds, brokerages, investment banks and exchanges. Also, please do not use personal email addresses – Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo, for example – to access the survey, as those results will be disqualified.
