Risk Awards 2018 - judging process:

These awards are decided by the editors and journalists of Risk.net and Risk magazine.

The judging process is split into three parts and winners are decided based on:

  • Submission of pitch documents
  • Off-the-record meetings
  • Due diligence on shortlisted candidates, including client calls

There's no minimum or maximum length for the submissions (pitches can be as short as two pages, or as long as 20). There's also no set structure or format - it is an opportunity for you to tell us why you deserve to win. Most pitching firms will be asked to set aside time for an off-record meeting, which plays a far bigger part in determining the eventual winners.

 

We are looking for innovation and creativity from applicants, in how you address the challenges you face in trading and risk management, and in how you address the challenges facing your clients.

 

Submissions should include case studies and examples of best practice or key deals.

 

Risk.net Market Technology Awards 2018 - judging process:

These awards are decided by an expert judging panel, consisting of senior industry executives and the editors of Risk.net and Risk magazine. Members of the panel will only judge those categories appropriate to their areas of expertise.

Winners will be decided on the strength of entries alone.

  • Entries should be a minimum of 1,600 words (800 words minimum for question 1 and 2).
  • There is no upper limit, however, entrants may include supplementary information or materials as necessary to support their pitch.
  • The inclusion of third-party testimonials is strongly encouraged.
  • Entrants should answer the following questions:
  • Please illustrate, giving specific examples, how your firm has demonstrated excellence in this category, and differentiated itself from its competitors.
  • Please illustrate, again giving specific examples, how your product or service has changed over the past 12 months? What have you done that is innovative?
  • You can attach additional sheets or marketing information as necessary to support your pitch.

 

While judges will analyse firms' entries in detail, judges are allowed to make their final decisions based on all the information at their disposal and not solely the information contained in the entry.

 

In some cases, judges may decide a particular candidate is better suited for a category other than the one originally entered. In such cases, the candidate will be consulted before the award is decided.
