Date Posted: February 22, 2013
Chicago—CME Group announced Feb. 22 the company was named "Best Futures Exchange" by Markets Media's 2013 Market's Choice Awards, as voted by peers and customers.
The inaugural awards held last night in New York recognized CME Group's excellence in client service and education, technology design and execution, and diverse and innovative products.
"We are honored that Markets Media has named us as the Best Futures Exchange," said Terry Duffy, CME Group Executive Chairman and President.
"We are especially pleased by the fact that this recognition is based on direct feedback from market participants and exchange industry peers."

The Market's Choice Awards span 23 categories across exchanges, sell-side desks, institutional buy-side investors, hedge funds, and technology providers.
The methodology in selecting nominees and winners focused on the most important opinions: those of market participants.
The magazine conducted more than 50 one-on-one interviews with senior market participants across the buy side and sell side, focusing on the areas of their expertise.
Then, an initial nominee-generating process was open to readers. Finally, the publication deliberated internally and, in consultation with the Markets Media's Advisory Board, selected the winners.
