WatersTechnology is a leading publication incorporating Inside Market Data, Inside Reference Data, Buy-Side Technology & Sell-Side Technology, and focuses on the data & technology challenges facing capital markets firms. The AFTAs recognize excellence in the deployment and management of financial technology within the asset management and investment banking communities. The AFTAs consist of two sections: End-User categories and Vendor categories. Only end-user firms — banks, brokers, asset manager and hedge funds — may enter the end-user categories. Only third-party technology providers may enter the vendor categories.

“Our work with MDSL helps clients streamline their overall procurement processes in a valuable way,” said Jason Dennis, Senior Vice President, Sales Engineering and Technology Services, FactSet. “This award reflects the positive feedback we receive from clients, who are searching for ways to improve operational efficiency in ways that also support innovation.”
