At this stage we are not revealing the Winners of the Awards, only the Nominations – that is, the three or four companies or individuals that came closest to the Award, one of which will be the Winner.

These Issuer Nominations are the result of a poll conducted by GlobalCapital in April, in which leading investment banks in each bond market sector voted on the issuers they regarded as having been most impressive during the past 12 months, in a variety of categories.

All the Nominated Issuers have thus achieved a high honour, in being recognised by informed market participants as among the leading actors in their fields. GlobalCapital offers its congratulations to the Nominees.

We also extend our thanks to all the banks that shared their knowledge of the market by voting in the poll.

In each category, one Nominee will be the Winner of the Award. The identity of the Winners will be revealed at our annual black tie Bond Dinner, to be held this year at the Guildhall in London on May 21. At the Dinner, we will also present Awards to the leading investment banks in the bond markets, which have been voted for by market issuers.

Because of the number of Awards to be presented at the Dinner, only some of the Awards will be presented formally on stage in front of the audience. The other Awards will be publicised to all the diners through a brochure on each table. Framed certificates marking these Awards will be available for the Winner to collect immediately outside the main hall at the end of the dinner.

A full list of all the Nominations and Award Winners will be published in GlobalCapital after the Dinner.

We would be delighted to welcome Nominees and other capital markets participants at the Dinner. To obtain further information about how to obtain tickets, please contact me. I will also be happy to answer any other questions about the Awards.
