28 February 2018, Paris & Hong Kong: Horizon Software (Horizon), the world’s leading provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology has won an award hat-trick. Last night the company was named ‘Best Sell-Side OMS’ by the TradingTech Awards Europe 2019. The accolade is the third consecutive major success at these awards for the company, with previous wins for ‘Best Sell-Side EMS’ in 2017 and 2018.

The final winners were voted on by market participants, with the awards recognising the complex challenges they face in Europe when developing trading and data solutions in the quickly-evolving industry. The initial shortlist was selected by a panel of industry experts assessing factors including entrants’ depth of involvement in capital markets, the relevance of a given solution or service to the selected category and the potential interest of the solution to the trading community.

Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of Horizon, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have come out victorious here, particularly given the standard of competition we faced; I’d like to personally express my gratitude to the Horizon team for its collective efforts in helping make this happen. 2018 was an especially exciting and successful year for us on all fronts and 2019 so far looks set to exceed it!”

He continued: “I see this win not only as confirmation that we remain frontrunners in the marketplace, but also as a signal that we are continuing to provide as high a quality of service as always as we experience significant growth and geographic expansion.”
