The annual Securities Industry Awards exist to commend companies and individuals who provide services to the securities sector. Launched in 1999, they have become an integral part of the financial services calendar and are awarded as part of London’s annual Systems in the City one-day conference.
Two of the team were presented Awards by the Chief BBC Sports commentator John Motson while the CEO award was presented to Mike Foley by Sir Michael Savory. Mike Foley said he was ‘delighted’ at the recognition from the independent judging panel.
“The Securities Industry Awards are always an important part of the year for those of us working to supply the financial sector with top level systems from the front to back office. This year’s triple win for peterevans is a highly positive reflection on the commitment and professionalism of our team – in all areas from technology development, through to Client liaison and marketing.”
