Openlink, the global leader in trading, treasury and risk management solutions for the energy, commodities, corporate and financial services industries, has topped the Risk.net Market Technology Awards for the sixth year running. The vendor once again came first in the Commodities Trading Systems and Commodities Pricing and Analytics categories, and was also awarded top prize in the new support and implementation category.
The longest-running of their kind, the Risk.net awards are renowned as the most prestigious for firms and individuals in their specific markets. The newly created Market Technology Awards replace the Risk Technology Rankings. Previously decided by a market survey, the rankings have been replaced with a judging panel this year.
Rich Grossi, CEO at Openlink said: “Our continued success in the Commodities Trading Systems and Commodities Pricing and Analytics categories cements our proven reputation in providing solutions to our clients that help them create one source of the truth to deliver pertinent analysis and insights.
While it’s important to create great software, a good technology provider ensures that its clients don’t have to go it alone. This is why we partner with our clients to mitigate systemic risk and capitalise on unforeseen value. To be recognised by Risk.net for the sixth straight year reflects our commitment to support and implementation, as well as our ability to innovate with cloud.”
In 2018, Openlink plans to build on this success through its Openlink Cloud Platform and TRMS solutions – which will provide top quality insights to customers as they adjust to their changing technology requirements.
Representing Openlink at the Ceremony to accept the award was Bernard Delahaye, Chief Revenue Officer, EMEA. The wins come at the end of another strong year for Openlink, following recognition at the Financial Technologies Forum News Technology Innovation Awards and the 2017 Chartis RiskTech 100 rankings for energy trading risk.
