Internet technology awards methodology
Euromoney has revamped its internet technology awards, which in past years have appeared in our November edition, so as significantly to enhance their usefulness for our readers. In the past, teams of Euromoney journalists have visited banks and other providers for demonstrations of their internet and other electronic offerings in the foreign exchange, fixed income, equity, derivatives and investor services marketplaces. The journalists have then chosen winners across a variety of categories based on breadth of functionality and ease of use of electronic platforms. In making these judgments, our journalists have acted almost as a proxy for providers' own customers. This year, Euromoney directly surveyed banks' and other providers' customer bases and asked end users which banks and other professional market players were doing the best job in providing internet and electronic services across a range of markets and functions.
