European Securitization Awards 2022 — vote for nominations closed
GlobalCapital has closed the nominations stage of it annual European securitization awards — shortlists and pitched awards next
GlobalCapital has closed the nominations stage of its 2022 European Securitization Awards.
This call for nominations was open to anyone active in the securitization market, and participants were free to nominate their own deals.
NB: This is only the first stage of the process — GlobalCapital’s editorial team will now compile a shortlist in each category, which will be opened to public voting later in January (see below for full timeline).
The shortlists will be down to our discretion — while the number of people nominating certainly plays a part, our aim to compile a representative and credible shortlist in each category.
Information on pitched awards
The majority of categories are voted for via market surveys. But we also have three categories that are pitched for — Overall Securitization Bank of the Year, Securitization Deal of the Year, and Private Securitization of the Year. Pitches can take place between January 4 and February 25. Please get in touch with Sophie Astles to arrange a time to pitch or discuss further on +44 (0) 2077798807 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guidance for pitched awards: in general, consideration will be given to breadth and depth of the nominee's securitization business; how innovative or challenging the transactions it did were; their quality of execution and structuring; feedback and endorsement from clients and counterparties; and investment, growth and progression in the business.
These pitches will be conducted mostly on the record and we will use information gathered in the process to justify our decisions in subsequent articles (please click here for an example).
However, mindful of the private nature of much of the market, we are happy to take portions of the discussion off the record, if you wish to highlight situations which illustrate your institution’s capabilities but which were never made public.
We are happy to leave client names, financial terms, etc. out of any eventual article to encourage the most candid participation from nominees. Simply make your preferences clear at the time of the pitch.
Our aim is that you should feel free to make the case for your institution as comprehensively as possible, across public and private aspects of securitization alike, without concern that confidential information will be circulated beyond GlobalCapital’s editorial team.
There is no requirement to use GlobalCapital data or league tables to support your pitch.

Finally, we would welcome ideas for a worthy recipient of an Outstanding Contribution to Securitization award. This is a special award given entirely at the discretion of GlobalCapital's editorial team. Previous winners have been Rob Ford, founding partner of 24 Asset Management, Max Bronzwaer, group treasurer of Obvion, and Alex Batchvarov, who runs securitization research at Bank of America. There is no fixed set of criteria. We would like the award to recognise individuals who have made huge contributions to the development of the market and who command universal respect among their peers.
