Almost 650 people responded to this year's poll, showing that GlobalCapital's Covered Bond Awards are a recognition of achievement by the market
Last year GlobalCapital was forced to abandon our 2019 Equity Capital Markets Awards dinner because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Little did we know that what seemed like a brief crisis would transform all our lives in the way it has. But despite the huge pressure of the virus and its dramatic impact on stockmarkets, the equity capital markets rose to the challenge in 2020, enabling many companies to raise vital capital to mend broken balance sheets and even to complete IPOs, all without executives having to leaving their home countries — or even their homes. After an extraordinary year, GlobalCapital is pleased to recognise the truly outstanding achievements in ECM.
After a poll of market participants at the end of 2020, GlobalCapital can now reveal the winners of its annual Syndicated Loan and Leveraged Finance Awards. GlobalCapital can also reveal the winners of the Private Debt Awards. Regrettably, we still cannot celebrate the awards with you in person, but we congratulate all the winners and nominees in this exceptionally challenging year.
