The Commodity Business Awards reward those companies that are making a significant impact on the way commodity business is conducted ? recognising those institutions making a positive contribution to the development of markets, client responsibility and, ultimately, investor satisfaction.

This is the second consecutive year GFI and Amerex have received the prestigious award.

Colin Heffron, President of GFI Group, said: ?We are very happy to receive this important award as recognition of our commitment to providing our clients with the highest quality service and products. Our brokers, sales people, our technology and ecommerce teams and all of our staff at GFI and Amerex work hard to offer the best that can be offered in the commodities sector?.

The Award process entailed a submission to a panel of editors, from which they selected and drew a list of nominees, where market practitioners (worldwide) were then asked to vote for companies whom they believed deserved recognition and reward for advancing commodity business expertise.
