About the IBTimes Trading Awards

The 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards identify the best financial service providers globally. The awards recognize excellence in the quality of the services they offer to traders and investors.

From 2010, readers of The International Business Times have been invited to vote on a range of attributes of the providers they use. The winners in each category are selected based on the votes and a judging panel of industry experts and independent research groups.

The IBTimes Trading Awards builds on the successes of last year's Awards, the 2010 FX Traders' Choice Awards. They were awarded based on the votes of IBTimes' readers collated by Forex DataSource, a Forex market research firm. The goal of the FX Traders' Choice Awards was to empower traders with reliable information and help them select reputable brokers, as traders decided the winners.

This year, the 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards continues to give public recognition to those brokers and financial service providers while increasing the scope of the awards to cover all major asset classes including Funds, ETFs, Stocks, Futures and Options. The awards also reflect The International Business Times' global identity and include votes on financial service providers from around the world that provide services in multiple languages.
