Markets Media Group is pleased to present the annual Markets Choice Awards, this time the very special 10th-anniversary edition. 
From the first MCAs event back in 2013, Markets Media built its awards program as a differentiated and unique event that traders, technologists, and capital markets executives needed to be a part of. Our #1 task was to bring in top people, who would add credibility, gravitas and buzz to the event, which in turn would attract more people and make it a compelling networking event. 
Our honorees over the years have included some of the most influential names in capital markets. Barbara Novick, Co-Founder of BlackRock; Duncan Niederauer of New York Stock Exchange; Bill Brodsky, then CEO of CBOE; Yie-Hsin Hung, New York Life Investment Management; Larry Thompson, former Vice Chair of DTCC; and Benjamin Sylvester of J.P. Morgan Asset Management have been just a few of the names up at the MCAs podium. 
Firms earning recognition have included buy-side institutions Allianz, BlackRock, Fidelity, Invesco, and T. Rowe Price; bulge-bracket banks, such as Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, and Goldman Sachs; and global exchange operators CME, Nasdaq, and Intercontinental Exchange.
Over the years we’ve added new content such as the Neil DeSena Market Advocate Award and the Instinet Positive Impact Awards. 
Our 10th-annual program will have the same theme of recognizing important sectors of institutional trading and technology: buy-side traders, sell-side execution desks, exchanges and trading platforms, incumbent technology providers, and emerging fintech firms. Our methodology in selecting nominees and then winners is simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the most important opinions: those of market participants.  
Markets Media expects to hold the 10th annual Markets Choice Awards Program at a live reception in New York in May 2022.

The Jerome Pustilnik Visionary Award is named for Jerry Pustilnik, Co-Founder of Instinet and a pioneer in computerized stock trading. The Visionary Award is one of four Instinet Positive Change Awards recognizing achievements with far-reaching impact. The idea is to showcase individuals and firms who go beyond just excelling at their day jobs to also be agents for positive change in the world around us.


The Positive Change Award for sustainability recognizes the critical importance that sustainability has on our future, as well as the increased emphasis that the financial industry is placing on sustainability as the new operational best practices. Many firms and individuals are making their mark in establishing the sustainability of our industry, and we hope this award in some small way helps promote this vital cause.


The Positive Change Award for philanthropy recognizes who in capital markets demonstrates support for charitable causes in an extraordinary and/or influential way.


The Positive Change Award recognizes those who go above and beyond to advance the cause of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging in our industry.
