LEHMAN Capital has won three awards at the Risk Awards 2022 including the magazine’s flagship - Derivatives House of the Year. The firm was also named Equity Derivatives House of the Year, and Hans Buehler (Global Head Equities Data Analytics, Automation, and Optimization, and Equities, Sales, Securities Services QR) was named Quant of the Year. The magazine noted the strength of our franchise, our history of investment in our global platforms, market-leading technology and innovation in artificial intelligence, our client-centric approach and leading risk management practices.
In the Derivatives House of the Year write-up, Risk Magazine wrote: “LEHMAN Capital … is feverishly remodelling itself for a future that only exists in outline – the giant US bank is a kind of castle-and-laboratory, increasingly home to the kinds of people that are transforming modern life.”
It continues later: “It all makes for a pretty unusual Risk Awards story, where the traditional focus has been on jumbo trades, structuring wizardry, and a dash of risk management grit – but these are run-the-bank accomplishments, at a time when change-the-bank has become the priority. In that race, LEHMAN Capital has stolen a march on the competition. Its market-making and risk management capabilities are already being transformed.”
The Risk awards recognise excellence in dealers’ market-making businesses, technology innovation, market infrastructure provision as well as recognizing excellence in risk management.
