GlobalCapital is pleased to invite pitches for our annual Asia capital markets and investment banking awards

The awards recognise the most impressive transactions across equity capital markets, debt capital markets and loan syndication, as well as the best investment banks in the region.

This year, GlobalCapital is taking a new approach to its awards, combining a market poll with pitch meetings to determine the standout deals and houses in Asia.

Stage one:

Banks should submit their written pitches for the best deals and best house awards by October 14, 2022.

The aim of the written submission is to allow each bank, in its own words, to tell the story of its achievements, innovation and performance during the awards period, backed up where relevant by supporting data from Dealogic, as well as client testimonials.

Stage two:

Once submissions are received, our team of journalists will shortlist a list of up to five candidates across each of the different deal award categories.

These shortlists will be publicly disclosed and put to a market vote through a poll that will open in early November. More details around the poll and its rules will be disclosed when polling begins.

Stage three:

The best deals will be decided through the market poll, in combination with editorial research.

The best bank awards will be determined based on pitch meetings or calls to take place between mid-October and mid-November with GlobalCapital’s senior editorial team.

The results of the poll and the winners of the best house awards will be revealed in January 2023.

The awards period runs from November 1, 2021, to October 31, 2022.

We will accept supplementary written pitches for deals that are priced after the banks submit their pitch as long as they fall within the awards period.

To make a submission please create an account on the GlobalCapital Awards & Accreditations submissions portal: https://gcasia.awardsplatform.com

There is no fee to participate. Please note all the categories are for regional Asia ex-Japan ex-Australia awards and are not country specific.

The awards are regional Asia awards, and not country specific.

The deadline for written pitches is October 14. There is no fee to participate in the awards process.

Deal pitches should be no more than five pages in length. House pitches should be no more than 10 pages in length.

For deal awards, please submit just ONE deal per category. For loan transactions, syndication must be completed.

Deals should demonstrate any or all of the following: superb execution, fulfilment of client needs, excellent reading of market conditions and investor appetite, aftermarket support, challenges overcome, and structural or other innovations. Only shortlisted deals will be put to a market poll to determine the winners.

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.
