Market participants are invited to submit ideas for new award categories, or suggest the removal of existing categories.

Given the lack of dollar issuance this year, the category for Best Dollar Deal has been provisionally removed. Dollar activity should instead be taken into account in the Global Deal, Global Issuer, Global House and Best Bank for Niche Currencies categories.

Because there have been few new issuers this year, Best Bank for Inaugural Issuers has also provisionally been removed. This award will instead be taken into account in Best Structuring and ALM Advisory and debut deal.

Timing

·         The awards period is from August 2017 to July 2018.

·         The shortlists will be voted on by the market from Monday, July 23 to Friday, August 17.  

·         The awards will be presented on the evening of September 13 in Munich.

·         Please e-mail your nominations to bill.thornhill@globalcapital.com no later than Sunday, July 8.
