FOW Awards for Asia – winners announced

The winners of the FOW Awards for Asia were unveiled tonight at a Gala Dinner in Singapore.

Newly merged Japan Exchange took home the Exchange of the Year following a record year and the successful integration of the merger of JPX and OSE.

Other notable winners included Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, which took home three awards and the Singapore Exchange, which also won in three categories.

In a sign of the continued development of Asian banks and brokerages, UOB Bullion and Futures, DBS Bank and Philip Futures all took home leading awards while GF Futures won the coveted Chinese FCM of the Year award.



CME Group took home the International Exchange of the Year for Asia for the third consecutive year.
