FOW International Award winners 2017

Taifex took home the Global Exchange of the Year on Wednesday night becoming the first regional market to scoop the award after a year of impressive growth and innovation.

The Taiwanese exchange won the award after a year in which it launched the world’s first offshore RMB options, a suite of FX futures, Nifty futures and Taiwanese dollar denominated S&P and DJIA futures.

In addition the exchange implemented a new trading system that doubled capacity and cut latency to quarter of its previous level. Taifex also launched an after-hours trading session during the juding period.

Former London Stock Exchange CEO Xavier Rolet picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award just days after his departure from the exchange.
