Voted Best Market Surveillance Provider by market participants in Waters Rankings Awards
NEW YORK and LONDON, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Eventus, a leading global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions, today won its fourth major award in the past five weeks as the firm’s Validus platform was named Trade Surveillance Product of the Year at the 2022 Risk Technology Awards. On July 15, Eventus won Best Market Surveillance Provider in the Waters Rankings Awards, in which “best-in-class service providers” are determined by votes from thousands of sell-side and buy-side market participant readers of WatersTechnology.
The honors followed Eventus earning two significant regional awards – the Markets Media European Markets Choice Award for Best in Market Surveillance and the 2022 WatersTechnology Asia Award for Best Market Surveillance Tool, capturing the category for the second consecutive year and marking the fifth win since 2021 specifically for the firm’s work in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. This is Eventus’ third win in four years of the Risk Technology Award, and the European award is the second honor this year for service in the European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: “We’re truly overwhelmed and gratified to accept these prestigious awards and to see the impact we’ve been able to have on the market in just the past few years. These achievements speak to the tremendous need for scalable, customizable trade surveillance capabilities along with compliance and regulatory expertise – across all asset classes and geographies. In the past two years we set out to grow our presence and build our client base in the EMEA and APAC regions, and we’ve exceeded our expectations. The Waters Rankings award is especially gratifying as so many firms using Validus consider it an essential component of their compliance program.”
