New York, May 10, 2024 – SimCorp today proudly announced it has been honored with the Markets Choice Award for Best M&A Deal of the year. This recognition was awarded for SimCorp’s merger with Axioma, which was successfully finalized in January 2024, with Axioma now operating as a product brand under SimCorp.

Now combined with SimCorp’s strong platform and broader capabilities, we provide a powerful and fully integrated offering across the entire investment management value chain.” 

The award was presented during the annual Markets Choice Awards, which honor the top performers in capital markets trading and technology. Winners are selected by the Markets Media editorial staff, following a nomination process by markets participants.
