BofA, HSBC pick up awards

  • Bank of America picks up currency derivatives house of the year from sister publication, for the build-out of its emerging markets business. The bank retooled its desk to better manage options EM flows in the year of the carry trade and focused on corporate client flow to boost its ability to recycle risks.
  • HSBC was named prime broker of the year thanks to its work on incorporating interest rate risk into the margin calculations for FX options. The standard net open position measurement ignores certain rate risk exposures in calendar spreads – but the bank’s new approach gave the PB confidence to take on more client exposures.
