GlobalCapital European Securitization Awards 2019: The Winners
GlobalCapital hosted its first annual European securitization awards in London on Wednesday, March 13.
The awards honoured banks, issuers, attorneys, accounting firms and deals that stood out in 2018, navigating the European structured finance market at a time of rapid transition for the industry.
It was the first time GlobalCapital has hosted these awards since before the financial crisis. The turnout, we think, was outstanding. The publication received nominations over a month long period. These, combined with review among market participants in Europe and GlobalCapital's own research, were used to compile a shortlist of three nominees in each category. The voting for the winners took place over another month.
Separately, we invited banks to pitch for three of the top awards - Securitization Bank of the Year, Private Securitization House of the Year and Securitization Deal of the Year.
In total, we received nearly 1,300 votes in the poll and took pitches from nine banks.
GlobalCapital would like to thank all who attended the event in London, everyone who took the time to vote and the banks that put the time in to pitch. We hope to see you all again next year.
