17 December 2018, Paris & Hong Kong: Horizon Software (Horizon), the world’s leading provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has been named a winner of the Bobsguide Software Rankings in the ‘Trading Systems’ category. The announcement comes in the midst of a successful few weeks for Horizon, as it was recently named a finalist in two categories of the TradingTech Awards Europe. Both accolades signify the marked strides the company has taken in 2018 in building on the excellent service it provides to clients.

The Bobsguide Software Rankings asked market participants who employ financial software solutions to vote for their top fintech software providers of the year, with voting opening in October and closing earlier this month.

Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of Horizon, commented: “We are absolutely delighted by this recognition, especially following the recent TradingTech shortlisting: together they symbolise the high esteem in which we are held by end-users, institutions and fellow industry professionals. This win reinforces our confidence that we are on the right trajectory in terms of giving the market what it wants and needs.”

He continued: “What we ultimately pride ourselves on is delivering value to the market, and there is little better indication that we are succeeding in this than receiving plaudits from individuals and organisations using Horizon. We would like to thank all those who took the time to vote for us and will of course continue to consistently innovate and improve our systems.”
