Chatham Financial wins Risk Management Advisory Firm of the Year at GlobalCapital Awards
- September 24, 2020
On 23 September 2020, Chatham Financial was announced Risk Management Advisory Firm of the Year at the GlobalCapital 2020 Global Derivatives Awards.
The annual award recognizes outstanding achievement, contribution, and innovation amongst the biggest names in global derivatives. An editorial panel supported by market due diligence and client testimonials decided on the winning firms. Chatham’s successful bid was led by Amol Dhargalkar, Managing Partner, Corporates, and Jackie Bowie, Managing Director, Global Real Estate and Co-Head of Europe, alongside colleagues Anh Nguyen, Rishin Patel, and Benoit de Benaze.
The team at Chatham is thrilled to be acknowledged for its global expertise and client dedication in the increasingly complex and evolving derivatives markets.
“To achieve this recognition less than a year after the combination of Chatham Financial and JCRA is testament to our unrelenting focus on client delivery. In real estate we are forging the path in the LIBOR transition — having just executed the first SOFR cap for a CRE borrower. This, amongst other areas of our technology development highlights the advantage our clients gain from partnering with Chatham,” comments Bowie.
“We’re proud that our work in employing technology and data analytics to provide insight and transparency to our clients was recognized by the awards committee,” said Dhargalkar. “Leveraging our strategic expertise, technology, and operational proficiency enables our clients to maximize financial risk reduction, improve hedging and accounting practices, and negotiate with counterparties from a position of knowledge.”
Clark Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer at Chatham, commented: “We are honoured to receive this prestigious award and appreciative to GlobalCapital for recognizing Chatham’s leadership in the debt and derivatives industry. Our team overcame many obstacles from the global pandemic to help our clients navigate this year’s volatile markets. As the largest independent firm in our industry, we support our clients through a broad set of advisory capabilities, process and execution services, and technology solutions.”
