Invast Global Wins 2018 Hedgeweek Global Award

Awards | +61 2 9083 1333 | 2018.04.03

For the second consecutive year, Invast Global has been crowned the Best Specialist Prime Broker at the annual Hedgeweek Global Awards held in the grand ballroom of the Reform Club – a private members’ club on London’s historic Pall Mall.

With a unique peer-review voting structure, the Hedgeweek Global Awards have grown to become one of the most prestigious and eagerly anticipated awards in the global Hedge Fund industry.

During a ceremony in the grand ballroom of the Reform Club in London’s Mayfair district, Australian-based, multi-asset prime broker, Invast Global has been voted Hedgeweek Global Awards 2018 ‘Best Specialist Prime Broker’, beating some of the biggest brokerage firms in the industry. Past winners include BNP Paribas (2014), Société Générale Prime Services (2015) and US-listed Cowen Prime Services (2016).

The global awards are presented annually to top performers in various financial services categories through a peer review system, consisting of the Hedgeweek readership. Hedgeweek is the premier news publication for institutional investors and asset managers, with two-thirds of their readers from the buy-side.

It is a high honour for the relatively new provider of bespoke prime services. While the listed Japanese parent company, Invast Securities, has been in existence for more than 50 years, the internationally-focused and Sydney-based, Invast Global, was founded in 2013. The firm has blossomed in the past few years, as international Investment Banks continue to withdraw from prime services. Invast Global has arguably been one of the biggest beneficiaries of this shift, with the brokerage successfully forging a reputation as the best non-bank prime broker in the industry – particularly amongst small/medium funds and brokerages.

The award comes shortly after Invast Global announced the appointment of investment banking heavyweight, Michael Cunningham (pictured), to the board in February. The former Goldman Sachs and Citigroup Treasurer represents a landmark addition to the Sydney firm.

Gavin White, CEO of Invast Global (Australia) says: “It is a huge honour for a boutique Australian brokerage to be conferred such a highly-regarded award, and to be acknowledged for punching well above our weight in the international arena. While our technology is second to none, the award is truly due to the dedication, expertise and integrity of our staff. In our Sydney office, we now have a team of 35 professionals, comprising more than 15 nationalities. We are a mini-United Nations, with language capabilities that enable our team to support our brokerage and hedge fund clients across more than 30 countries. We are humble in our appreciation of the award, but we are determined to show that this is just the latest step in our trajectory toward achieving our ambitious global growth plans.”
