TAIFEX Received Global Recognition And Named ‘Global Exchange Of The Year’ At The FOW International Awards 2017 - Active Year Of Successful Product Launches And Innovations Sees TAIFEX Win Third International Award In 2017

Date 07/12/2017

The Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) was honoured as ‘Global Exchange of the Year’ at the FOW International Awards 2017 hosted by the Global Investor Group today in London.

The ‘Global Exchange of the Year’ award caps off an extremely active year for TAFIEX. As of November 2017, volumes have increased 5.7% (YoY) compared to the previous year as TAIFEX continued to introduce new products and innovations that appeal to domestic and international investors.

Dr. Len-Yu Liu, TAIFEX Chairman, said, “This is a great achievement for recognizing TAIFEX’ tremendous efforts in 2017. With the launch of USD/RMB Options, EUR/USD Futures, USD/JPY Futures, as well as offshore equity index futures such as S&P500® Futures and DJIA® Futures, we have continued to meet the needs of our customers, while expanding our appeal among new investor groups. The launch of new innovations, such as the after-hour trading session, has also expanded the reach of our market.”

Decided from the winners of regional-based awards, the ‘Global Exchange of the Year’ award recognises one exchange that has pioneered in areas including innovation, new contract launches, international cooperation and technology upgrades. TAIFEX was also awarded ‘Exchange of the Year, Asia Pacific’ at the FOW International Awards 2017, which acknowledges the growth and innovation being seen at the best derivatives market in the region.

Dr. Liu concluded, “Looking ahead to 2018, we will further build on the success and recognition that we have achieved, while also accelerating the pace of our development and international outreach.”
