Wedbush Securities’ prime brokerage team has been voted "Best North American Hedge Fund Research Provider" at the Hedgeweek USA Awards 2016.
The annual awards ceremony, which took place in New York, recognises excellence among service providers and hedge fund managers globally, and acknowledges distinction in over 50 award categories.
The awards are determined by a "peer review system," where industry professionals, including managers at fund administrators, institutional and high net-worth investors, prime brokers, and advisers, elect a "best-in-class" in a series of categories (http://www.hedgeweek.com/awards).
"We are honoured and greatly appreciate the recognition we have received from Hedgeweek USA," says Sean Trager, senior vice president, prime brokerage at Wedbush Securities. "I am thrilled about the strides and progress that our prime brokerage team has made thus far, and I look forward to continuing to further build and strengthen the level of service and commitment we provide to our clients."
Wedbush's Securities' finance department provides both internal and external counterparts with long financing and short sale coverage on US Securities, as well as, electronic affirmative determination for short sale requests. Traded products include ADR's, general collateral, ETFs, specials, and corporate bonds.
