It has been announced that Watson Wheatley Financial Systems, specialists in securities reconciliation, have won the Reconciliation & Data Aggregation award at the 2014 International Hedge Fund Awards. The International Hedge Fund Awards, sponsored by AI Global Media celebrate excellence within the emerging asset class, recognising the people, companies and firms who are successfully forming, managing and advising on hedge funds in the current market.

WWFS managing director Duncan Wheatley remarked “We are extremely pleased to accept the award and feel that it reflects on our hard work during the last 12 months which has resulted in a number of new client wins, an upgraded reconciliation platform and much increased confidence for the coming year. We are already experiencing significantly more interest in our products over last year and will have more good news to announce soon”

“A bull market, the rise of interest in alternatives and the increasing regulatory challenge has cre­ated an interesting year for the industry but it’s clear from the evidence received by our judging panel that the industry’s professionals have risen to the challenge,” commented Charlotte Abbott, Chief Co-Ordinator of the 2014 International Hedge Fund Awards. “They have produced some out­standing work, showcasing some extraordinary talent, and we’re delighted the industry has been so determined to recognise its stars.”
