Tradeteq, the electronic trading platform for institutional trade finance, picked up the award for the ‘Best Collaboration Initiative’. The accolade recognises their efforts to work with over 20 banks, financial institutions and trade associations to close the $1.5tn trade finance gap through the Trade Finance Distribution Initiative (TFD Initiative), for which it is the distribution technology provider.
Additionally, Pragma has won the ‘Best Front-Office Initiative’ accolade for its innovative multi-asset, broker-neutral algorithmic execution platform, Pragma360. The platform enables front-office professionals to create a unique algorithmic trading suite under their own corporate brand.
Christoph Gugelmann, CEO of Tradeteq, commented: “Winning this award recognises the transformative change Tradeteq is bringing to the trade finance market. By partnering with some of the leading trade finance banks, we hope to transform this market into one that is operationally efficient, scalable and easily distributable. Through the use of our credit scoring AI and electronic trading platform, the TFD Initiative’s members can boost trade finance distribution and contribute to closing the trade finance gap.”
David Mechner, CEO of Pragma, was extremely pleased to win the award, stating: “In recent years, the front-office has focused on regulators’ calls for more transparency around execution quality and market impact. Winning this award is recognition of Pragma’s efforts to help front office professionals respond to this mandate using the most-advanced trading and execution tools.”
