12 June 2019, Paris & Hong Kong: Horizon Software (Horizon), the world’s leading provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has been shortlisted as ‘Best Trading Technology Vendor’ by the FX Week e-FX Awards 2019. The awards were designed to recognise and celebrate excellence in the fast-paced and quickly evolving electronic foreign exchange market among banks, brokers, vendors and the buy-side.

The company is continuing impressive awards success with this news, having in 2019 already been named ‘Best Sell-Side OMS’ by the TradingTech Awards and ‘Best Trading System’ by the FSTech Awards.

To have our efforts in the FX space rewarded by a publication as well-regarded as FX Week is something the whole team takes a lot of pride in, especially as it indicates broader, industry- and client-wide approval and praise.”

Thieullent continued: “Given our international presence and reach, it’s extremely important that we remain on top of varied, often geographically specific client requirements and concerns. We see this nomination not only as encouragement that we are succeeding, but primarily as motivation to continue.”
