Kx parent company First Derivatives (FD) has been awarded the ‘Best Technology Award’ at the AIM Awards on 11 October 2018.

The AIM Awards identify quoted companies and entrepreneurs that have harnessed the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) to help them fulfill their ambition and growth potential in the last twelve months. The AIM is a division of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) which acts as the market for smaller, growing companies.

With this award, FD’s Kx technology was recognized as one that reflected ‘the innovation and entrepreneurial skills that are the cornerstone of the AIM culture’. The ‘Best Technology Award’ is sponsored by Berenberg.

FD Chairman Seamus Keating accepted this award on behalf of First Derivatives.
