Interest Rate Derivatives House of the Year
In presenting one of its top House awards, Risk called out how Barclays’ resilience amid the last 12 months of market turmoil has enabled the Rates business to deliver great client outcomes. The magazine also highlighted the bank’s ‘bouncebackability’ and the role it played during a period of acute stress in the sterling market last September, as well as its support for Japanese clients when Bank of Japan policy action last December caused yen swaps volumes to double overnight.
"This is great recognition for our hugely talented teams around the world. It’s also testament to the investments we have made in people, technology, and balance sheet to re-establish our position as a top-tier Rates house."

Derivatives client clearer of the year
Risk applauds Barclays for its fully integrated financing and clearing platform. This holistic approach proves advantageous amidst market dislocation, and Risk points to clients’ praise for Barclays going the extra mile to understand and meet their needs.
"Our strategy recognises that clearing is just one part of a relationship with clients that are trading more products and engaging in more complex things in multiple jurisdictions."
