In December EuroWeek polled banks, institutional investors and borrowers to find the market’s opinion on the outstanding loan arrangers and borrowers of 2007 in 42 categories. These ranged from the most impressive arranger of syndicated loans to the bank with the most improved market profile. They were also asked to rank the most impressive deals of the year.

The nominations in each category were published in EuroWeek’s Review of the Year 2007 in January and the winners were announced at Syndicated Loans & Leveraged Finance Awards dinner on February 5 2008, at London’s Royal Courts of Justice. This supplement will list the winners and runners-up in each category.
