Saxo Capital Markets wins Best Boutique Prime Broker in HFM Hedge Fund Asia Awards

Saxo, the leading fintech specialist and capital markets solution provider, has today announced that it has won the Best Boutique Prime Broker at the HFM Hedge Fund Asia Awards 2019.  

The annual HFM Hedge Fund Asia Awards recognise and reward hedge funds and hedge fund service providers that have demonstrated exceptional customer service, innovative product development and strong and sustainable business growth over the past 12 months.

This award was given to Saxo as a recognition of its ongoing investment and focus on the hedge fund sector and its commitment to innovation and technology across traditional prime broker services.

Technology has long been at the heart of Saxo’s business strategy and over the past 25 years, Saxo has digitalised the entire investment and trading process, delivering seamless access to global capital markets and expertise to its institutional partners, of which hedge funds are a very integral segment.

In Asia, Saxo has had significant success in providing tailored, expert service and support to hedge fund partners over the past 12 months, having grown its headcount in the Asia region and appointed several senior executives to its hub in Singapore.

Commenting on the win Aditya Laroia, Saxo, said, "We are delighted to have won this award and to be recognised for our commitment to the hedge fund community in Asia. Since our inception, we have continued to invest in our offering, focusing on technology as a way of improving efficiency in accessing capital markets products and services for financial institutions. We look forward to continuing to build long-term partnerships in the region and providing market-leading services to our hedge fund clients.”

Saxo’s success in Asia follows an important year for the company which saw China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co. Ltd acquire a 52 per cent stake in the bank, laying the ground for long-term business development in the region.
