Waters Rankings 2020

Welcome to the Waters Rankings 2020, our 18th 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, June 5th, 2020. The results will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on July 16.

Remember, voting ends at midnight on Friday, June 5th, 2020 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.
