GlobalCapital Securitization 2019

Each year, these awards honor the firms and deals that stood out among their peers in the US securitization industry. 

This year, they were expanded to recognize innovation in structured finance, with awards given for Most Innovative Securitization Deal of the Year and Most Innovative Securitization Bank of the Year. Categories for research and trading teams of the year were also added.

The survey this year broke a record for these awards, collecting nearly 1,100 responses, up by 300 from 2018. 

GlobalCapital would like to congratulate all of the winners, and thank everyone who took the time to vote and carefully consider their choices, so that we can be confident that these awards are a true benchmark for performance in US securitization.
