Saxo, the leading fintech specialist focused on multi-asset trading and investment, was honoured with the Best Boutique Prime Broker at the HFM Asia Services Awards 2019, for the second year running.
Held in Hong Kong on 13th November, the annual HFM Asia Services Awards recognise and reward excellence in hedge funds servicing and product innovation across Asia over the past year. It is a great honour for Saxo Markets to win the Best Boutique Prime Broker Award in Asia for two years straight, testament to the team’s consistent efforts in providing competitive offerings and services in the hedge fund space.
Over the past five years, Saxo has also won the award for Best Technology Prime Broker in Asia. Winning this top industry award deepens Saxo’s commitment to the hedge fund community in Asia and the recognition it has gained with Hedge Funds, Family Offices and peer service providers.
Commenting on the win, Echo Zhao, Country Head of Saxo China , said, “It is a privilege to receive this prestigious award two years in a row, amongst a distinguished peer group in the prime brokerage space. Saxo’s investment in the hedge fund community and ongoing focus on innovation and technology in Asia are paying off, as evidenced by the awards won over the past few years. We will continue to deliver seamless access to global capital markets and expertise to institutional partners, of which hedge funds are an integral part.”
