25 September 2017, Singapore, Paris & London: Horizon Software, the award-winning provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, today announced another important win to add to the trophy case. Horizon has won FOW and the Asia Capital Market award in the ‘Multi-Asset Trading System of the Year’ category. Within the Capital Markets the awards are recognised as the largest buy-side-led awards in Asia and acknowledge the very best achievements across the Asian capital markets

Clément Pelletier, Horizon APAC Sales Director, commented: “It is always great to know that our company and our technology are being acknowledged by such a well-informed and specialist audience. Our trading technology is used by trading teams across Asia, providing the latest strategies and advanced features. We are delighted to win this award, even more so knowing that our clients and peer group were instrumental in the decision process. We have a clear commitment to Asia as shown by our recent work with Everbright Photon, for the launch of new commodity options markets in China and our work with VNDirect, which enables them to enter warrants and futures market making on the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchanges. We look forward to further building our presence in this rapidly-growing and important market.”

Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of Horizon Software, said: ‟Last year we won Trading System of the Year in Europe and this win builds on the success we are seeing in Asia. I would particularly like to thank the team in Asia, and I’m very pleased we have won the Global Investor Asia Awards. To win such a major award for a second-year running is a great achievement for the company.

William Mitting, Managing Director of Global Investor Group, commented: “We are delighted to award the Multi-Asset Trading System of the Year to Horizon – they have clearly been very involved in the launches of a number of new exchanges in the region and have helped a number of major institutions in Asia to establish trading functions in new instruments.”

For more than 15 years Horizon has been the market-leading technology provider, powering capital markets and delivering sophisticated technology, building trading platforms and maintaining powerful multi-Asset platforms, all based on the core “Trade Your Way” philosophy – the unique approach of making technology work for the trader.
