12 December 2018, Paris & Hong Kong: Horizon Software (Horizon), the world’s leading provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has been shortlisted for ‘Best Sell-Side EMS’ and ‘Best Sell-Side OMS’ by TradingTech Awards Europe 2019. Horizon has previously won ‘Best Sell-Side EMS’ awards at the ITT (Intelligent Trading Technology) Awards in 2017 and 2018.

The awards, organised by the A-Team Group, consider the different challenges facing market participants as they look to develop trading and data solutions in the rapidly-evolving market. The shortlist was compiled by a panel comprising industry experts and the publication’s editorial team and was based on depth of involvement in capital markets, relevance of a given solution or service to the selected award category and the potential interest of the solution to the trading community.

Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of Horizon, commented on the news: “We are pleased to have received this recognition, especially as the shortlist was compiled by the TradingTech advisory board in conjunction with the editorial team. Given that the finalists were chosen by very knowledgeable professionals, both working within the industry and covering it as journalists, knowing that such an experienced group of people chose Horizon as a frontrunner is a great feeling!”

He continued: “Our constant aim is to stay ahead of the market and provide innovative, customisable and intuitive solutions to our clients. Being chosen as a finalist in two categories at these well-regarded awards, on top of our other recent award wins in this area, provides us with added confidence that we’re consistently achieving this.”
