Syndicated Loan, Leveraged Finance and Private Placement Awards 2016: the full results

loan awards 2016.jpg

GlobalCapital revealed the winners of its Syndicated Loan, Leveraged Finance and Private Placement Awards 2016 at its 14th Annual Loans Dinner on February 8.

A dozen borrowers — corporate, bank and sovereign — from all over the EMEA region attended the dinner of 250 people at the Guildhall in London.

The Awards were as ever based on a poll of loan market participants, conducted at the end of 2016. As such, they are the only Awards that recognise achievement in the EMEA loan market based on the opinion of the market.

In a revised set of Awards this year, we added two high profile new Awards: Lifetime Achievement Award and Most Impressive Growing Force in the Loan Market.

Participants at the dinner supported the Loan Syndicate Managers’ Forum’s chosen charity, Make Sense of It, which supports research into, and sufferers from, multiple sclerosis.

GlobalCapital congratulates all the winners and nominees. The full list is below.
