Now in its 8th year, the Financial Technologies Forum (FTF) Awards recognize achievements in securities operations across a number of industry-specific categories. The purpose of these awards is to celebrate and recognize the professionals, financial technology vendors, service providers, industry bodies and regulators that have made significant strides and noteworthy achievements in operational excellence in the past year.
FTF requires that winners be selected by qualified industry participants rather than a panel of unknown judges. Only those who are eligible industry participants can pick the winners via an online voting process.
John Pizzi, CEO, BaseVenture said, “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the ‘Best Cutting-Edge Solution’ award, and we see this as important recognition of the leadership position that we have taken in helping modernize the Alternative Investment Industry. We are particularly happy about being honored with an award that focuses on operational excellence, as improving operational efficiency is one of the key benefits that our clients enjoy by using our cloud-based platform.”
“We would like to congratulate all those short listed this year in what was our most competitive nomination process to date,” says Maureen Lowe, president and founder of FTF and publisher of FTF News. “After reviewing hundreds of nominations, it was tough to narrow down to a short list of five or eight companies in each category. Its was also great to see some new companies enter this year. We look forward to celebrating with participating winners at the gala in June. Good luck to everyone in the voting process!”
Voting is open until April 6 and winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner which will be held in New York City on May 16, 2018.
