GlobalCapital ECM Awards 2019: the poll is open
The poll is open for GlobalCapital’s Equity Capital Markets Awards for 2019 and we invite market participants to have their say on the best performers of last year. The results will be announced at our fifth annual ECM Awards Dinner on Wednesday, March 18 in London — so please save the date.
GlobalCapital’s ECM Awards are the only comprehensive awards for equity capital markets activity in EMEA. The purpose of the awards is to foster excellence in the market by recognising the issuers, investors, investment banks and other advisers that impressed the most over the last year and applauding the deals that stood out for their success, innovation or importance.
Since their relaunch in 2015, GlobalCapital’s ECM Awards have been well received by the market. Our dinners in the past four years have been attended by C-suite executives from issuers, company founders, investors and senior ECM bankers from all the leading ECM banks and other market participants.
The 2019 Awards comprise:
· The best banks, to be chosen by editorial panel.
· The deals of the year, to be chosen by a poll of market participants and editorial panel.
· The best non-bank market participants, chosen by market poll
Three of the deal awards are to be chosen by editorial panel with the aid of market nominations and pitches from nominees, including a new award recognising outstanding ECM transactions with an environmental, social and governance (ESG) slant.
The poll is now open, and we urge you to vote. This is your chance to have your say about which deals and market players are the best in the business.
You can vote online, between now and January 24, by following this link:
Banks are invited to pitch for their awards. GlobalCapital will consider the merits of banks whether they pitch or not but we encourage you to engage with us directly to make your case as forcefully as possible. If you would like to do this, please contact email@example.com.
The pitching process is slated to finish by the end of January
We would also be very happy to answer any questions you may have about the awards and our selection methodology.
For further information about attending the awards dinner, please contact Daniel Elton on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
We thank you in advance for your support.
