FTF announces the winners of the FTF News Technology Innovation Awards competition.
NEW YORK CITY — Despite the many challenges of this year, Financial Technologies Forum (FTF) is proud to announce that more voters took part in the 2020 FTF News Technology Innovation Awards (the FTF Awards) than participated last year — a sign of the enduring support for unique awards that honor achievement in securities operations.
The winners for 2020, the tenth year of the FTF Awards, are being announced today, June 8.
For the individual and top provider award categories, the winners are:
- FinTech Person of the Year: Corinne Neale, Global Head of Business Applications, BNY Mellon Data and Analytics Solutions
- Ops Business Person of the Year: Bob Santella, CEO, IPC Systems
- Service Provider of the Year: TriOptima
- And Software Solution of the Year: Murex
Other than the Editor’s Choice award, securities operations professionals within the financial services industry put forth this year’s nominees and ultimately picked the winners for achievements in 2019. FTF approved the final list of nominees but did not pick the ultimate winners – as always, qualified voters did.
“It speaks volumes to our nominees and winners that despite the current environment, clients, peers and FTF readers took the time to vote in this year’s FTF Awards — even surpassing the number of votes we received last year,” says Maureen Lowe, president, founder and publisher of FTF and FTF News. “We have seen some real innovation from FinTech companies over the past 12-to-18 months, and we expect that despite current challenges, the innovation will continue. This year, our regular gala has been put on hold, but the celebration will continue — albeit in virtual form through various online initiatives. We remain optimistic, however, that we will be able to all meet again next year for a show-stopping gala celebration. Until then, congratulations to our 2020 FTF Awards winners!”
In 2011, FTF and FTF News established the awards to honor the professionals, financial technology vendors, service providers, industry bodies and regulators that have made breakthroughs and advances in securities operations.
