Our decisions will be made on the basis of written pitches submitted by banks and presentations to our editorial teams.
Banks should submit their written pitches no later than October 9. We will then shortlist candidates in each category before arranging pitch meetings with those firms.
The awards period runs from November 16 2016 to November 15 2017. We will accept supplementary written pitches for deals that banks feel are worthy of consideration for an award, but which price after a bank has conducted the relevant asset class meeting with our team. We may then follow up with a further discussion.
The results of the awards will be released online in early December.
Award-winning deals will demonstrate any or all of the following — superb execution, fulfilment of client needs, excellent reading of market conditions and investor appetite, aftermarket support, challenges that were overcome, and structural or other innovation.
Award-winning banks will demonstrate: breadth of coverage, origination and execution success, client relationship strength, market share development, and diversity of business in terms of deal type, client and geography.
We may omit a category if we feel there is no worthy candidate or if we consider deal flow to have been insufficient to merit its inclusion.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the awards process. See below for all the important details.
Thanks and good luck.

* Banks do not need to pitch for each category. For the best overall deal awards, please pick one of the awards you have pitched for a sub-category. For example, if you have pitched separate ECM deals for Best IPO, Best Follow-On/ABB and Best Equity-Linked Deal, you should pick one of these deals to represent your Best ECM Deal pitch as well.
