Contineo, the industry-backed messaging network for equity-linked structured products, was awarded a Highly Commended award for Outstanding Wealth Management Technology Initiative – Front End at the Private Banker International Wealth Awards in Singapore on Friday. The awards, now in their 10th year, recognise global leaders in private wealth management. CEO Mark Munoz said the award was a welcome endorsement for the Contineo team.
“These awards are based on nominations, and we are proud that the industry saw fit to nominate us.” he said. “Contineo is unique in that our network and products are designed by the industry, for the industry with our Advisory Group and subscribers driving the development agenda. Public recognition like this shows us that the industry is really on board with what we are doing.”
Contineo went live in June as a communications hub for products including Equity Linked Notes; Knock-Out Equity Linked Notes; Accumulator; Decumulator; Fixed Coupon Notes; DRAN and OTC Options. Since go-live the firm is also launching new data products to illuminate the ‘black hole of trading.’
“Contineo is developing a range of data products that will bring transparency to the structured product market for the first time.” he said. “We’ve had terrific feedback from our industry partners and look forward to bringing further insights to the industry in the near future.”

Contineo is the first industry supported, open messaging network for private banks and wealth management firms to access issuers of structured products. Together we are a community with a shared vision and purpose. We believe that technology should be intuitive, easy to access, and available to all participants. This means creating an open messaging standard in concert with the buy-side and sell-side, and enabling access to all parties, including other certified technology vendors. This mission is shared by our current subscribers, who recognise the importance of an open, efficient and transparent network.
