Systems In The City Awards 2017


CRESTCo Celebrates its 21st Birthday!

Leading suppliers of services and systems for the regulated investment sector were confirmed at the annual Systems in The City Awards presentation which took place at Merchant Taylors’ Hall. Among these, a special 21st Anniversary Award was presented to Dr Iain Saville CBE who set up CRESTCo, the central securities depository for markets in the UK, in 1996.

A lifetime achievement award was presented to InvestCloud’s Steve Wise following the acquisition of his company Babel Systems. Clearstream’s Philip Brown was awarded CEO of the Year.

Stephen Pinner, Managing Director of Goodacre UK, who hosted the awards ceremony said:

“The pressure on service and system suppliers is intense and shows no sign of letting up with the forthcoming requirements to meet regulatory challenges such as MiFID ll and GDPR. We received 25% more applications for SITC nominations this year which shows how highly respected these awards have become. All nominees and winners are to be congratulated for their work, most of which is done ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure that our investment services operate efficiently”.


A full list of winners is enclosed. Photographs of the presentations are available on request.
