19 October, 2016 (Hong Kong):
Contineo, the industry-backed messaging network for equity-linked structured products, received a Highly Commended award for Outstanding Wealth Management Technology Initiative – Front End at the Private Banker International Wealth Awards in Singapore last week.
The awards, now in their 11th year, recognize international leaders in private wealth management. CEO Mark Munoz said the award cemented Contineo’s place in the private banking ecosystem as the firm prepared to launch new products.
“What’s important for us is that these awards are industry led, and we have received this one two years in a row” he said. “From the very beginning Contineo has been guided by and driven by our Subscribers. We work with all industry participants, buy-side, sell-side, technology vendors, regulators and more and this award really sets us apart in that context.”
Contineo originated as a communications hub for products including Equity Linked Notes; Knock-Out Equity Linked Notes; Accumulator; Decumulator; Fixed Coupon Notes; DRAN and OTC Options. The firm will launch new data products, currently in beta, in the next few weeks.
“Contineo continues to be recognized by the industry in award programs including Asia Multi-Issuer Platform of the Year at the annual Structured Products Asia Awards and Best Dealer Platform Asia Pacific,” said Mr Munoz. “I’m very excited about the initiatives we will be announcing next and their potential impact.”
