GlobalCapital launches syndicated loans and leveraged finance awards poll for 2021

Awards_adobe_sept 24_575px

Market participants invited to vote, with poll live until November 19

GlobalCapital’s Loan Awards are the only full scale awards for the loan market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the only ones based on a poll of market participants. This ensures that they truly reflect the opinion of the market, and is the reason for the longstanding support they enjoy.

We invite you to vote to determine the Awards via this online poll (click through here). The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 19.

In each category, the three or four nominees with the most votes will be published in December, and the complete results including the winners will be revealed in February, alongside awards for the private debt markets.

GlobalCapital has added awards this year to recognise the strides the syndicated loan and leveraged finance markets have made towards sustainable finance.

The rules of the poll are:

Banks, borrowers, investors, law firms, private equity firms and other market participants may vote. One vote is allowed per firm in each category.

You cannot win in a category in which you do not vote.

Banks and investors can vote for deals in which they are arrangers or lenders, but borrowers may not vote for their own deals. No firm can vote for itself as an institution or for an institutional award.

Canvassing for votes is forbidden, as is discussing your votes with others outside your firm.

Voting according to your true opinion of what was the most deserving winner is very important: if you do not win a particular award, you would rather a deserving candidate won, than an undeserving one.

We hope you enjoy the poll, and we would be happy to answer any questions. Please email silas.brown@globalcapital.com, if any questions arise.
