GlobalCapital today launches its poll to decide its Bond Awards - the premier accolades for issuers, banks and other participants in the international bond markets, which are decided entirely by market opinion. We invite you to vote to choose the bond issuers, investment banks, investors and other market participants that have contributed most impressively to the market during the past year.

GlobalCapital's Awards have won a growing following in the market, because unlike other Awards they are decided entirely by market participants - and hence represent the view of the market on which players were the most dedicated, creative, agile and consistent.

The Awards are presented at our annual Bond Dinner, which this year will be held on May 22 at the Jumeirah Carlton Towers Hotel in London.

We invite you to vote to determine the Awards, in this online poll:

https://surveys.globalcapital.com/s3/2019-GlobalCapital-Bond-Awards

The poll has five sections: supranational, sovereign and agency bonds, financial institutions, emerging markets, corporate issuers and high yield.

The principle of the poll is that investment banks vote on the best borrowers, and borrowers on the best investment banks. Investors and other market participants such as lawyers, debt advisers and rating agencies can vote on both issuers and banks.

And there are also awards for the most influential investors, the best rating agencies, and the best law firms and advisers, which all players can vote on.

The period covered by the poll is March 28 2018 to March 5 2019. One vote is allowed per firm in each category, so it is best to coordinate with colleagues, but if you are in any doubt, contact GlobalCapital and we can help.

We will keep your votes confidential - we ask you to keep them confidential too.

You are welcome to invite other market participants to vote for you, but you may not offer inducements to do so (including offering to vote for others),  vote on others' behalf, or ask them whether they have voted.

A complete list of the Awards categories is below. Obviously we invite you to vote in the categories which are most relevant to your direct professional experience.

We hope you enjoy the Awards.
