SunGard has been named "Best Buy Side Technology Provider of the Year" in the 2010 Waters and Buy Side Technology Awards. The annual awards honor the achievements of firms that service asset and hedge fund managers and are adjudicated by an expert panel from the buy side industry, including consultancies, analyst firms and the editorial team at Buy Side Technology.
