GlobalCapital Asia is pleased to invite pitches for our annual capital markets and investment banking awards, rewarding the most impressive transactions and investment banks of 2018.

Our decisions will be made on the basis of both pitch documents submitted by banks and meetings with our team of journalists and editors.

Banks should submit their written pitches no later than October 11. The aim with the written submission is to allow each bank, in its own words, to tell the story of its achievements, innovations and performance during the awards period, backed up where relevant by supporting data and client testimonials.

Once submissions are received, our team of editors and journalists will then shortlist candidates in each category before arranging pitch meetings.

The awards period runs from November 16 2017 to November 15 2018. We will accept supplementary written pitches for deals that banks feel are worthy of consideration for an award but which price after a bank has conducted the relevant asset class meeting with our team. We may then follow up with a further discussion.

The results of the awards will be released online in December.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the awards process. See below for all the important details and guidelines for the pitches.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Thanks and good luck.

* Banks do not need to pitch for each category. For the best overall deal awards, please pick one of the awards you have pitched for a sub-category. For example, if you have pitched separate ECM deals for Best IPO, Best Follow-On/ABB and Best Equity-Linked Deal, you should pick one of these deals to represent your Best ECM Deal pitch as well.


The awards period runs from November 16 2017 to November 15 2018.

We will only consider transactions from Asia ex Japan ex Australia. These include deals from both issuers from within the region and deals from foreign issuers denominated in the local currencies of countries in Asia ex Japan ex Australia. However, we will give priority to deals from Asian issuers.

The deadline for written pitches is October 11. Please submit your pitches on time. Late submissions may mean it is impossible to organise a meeting.

The written pitch for a deal should be no more than five pages in length. For deal awards, please submit just ONE deal per category. For loan transactions, syndication must be completed.

Award-winning deals will demonstrate any or all of the following: superb execution, fulfilment of client needs, excellent reading of market conditions and investor appetite, aftermarket support, challenges that were overcome, and structural or other innovation.

Pitches for a bank award should be no more than 10 pages. Award-winning banks will demonstrate: breadth of coverage, origination and execution success, client relationship strength, market share development, and diversity of business in terms of deal type, client and geography.

We may omit a category if we feel there is no worthy candidate or if we consider deal flow to have been insufficient to merit its inclusion.

Word, PDF and PowerPoint formats will be accepted.  

Submissions should be sent to:

Rashmi Kumar, GlobalCapital Asia editor:

Matthew Thomas, Asia bureau chief:

Alex Pang, executive editor, Asiamoney:


Deadline for written pitches: October 11
