We invite you to vote for the movers, shakers and loan syndicators of 2017. The industry's banks, borrowers, investors, lawyers, private equity houses and service providers are all invited to pick the players who should be garlanded for their performance in the market this year, or service to it. To cast your ballot, register and vote here.

Having taken soundings in the market, we've stripped the poll of a few categories and sharpened up the website. 


The deadline for votes is 6pm London time on Thursday, November 23.

In January, GlobalCapital will publish the shortlist for each award, based on the institutions and deals that get the most votes. We will reveal the winners at our 15th Syndicated Loan and Leveraged Finance Dinner, to be held on February 7, 2018 in London.

For details on attending the event, please contact Daniel Elton at daniel.elton@globalcapital.com,+44 20 7779 7305.

If you have any questions about the poll, please contact Silas Brown at silas.brown@globalcapital.com, +44 207 779 7305.
