AsianInvestor is asking you to name the top providers of trading and execution, exchanges and technology for buy-side dealers. Our poll will be open through August, and winners will be announced online in September.

A full analysis of voting tallies and winner write-ups will be featured in the November 2009 edition of AsianInvestor magazine.

The results will be used to support our annual awards for service providers. This year we have expanded categories related to trading and execution.

So we are asking for input from people who use such services: long-only funds, hedge funds, institutional investors and other members of the buy-side community.

The award winners will be recognised at a black-tie gala to be held on 15 October at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong. We are offering every 20th qualified voter one free ticket to this (not cheap!) event.

All voters' names and organisations will be held in strict confidence. Your names will neither be published nor passed to third parties. Thank you for your participation.
