European Securitization Awards 2022 — voting now live!
GlobalCapital is pleased to launch the main voting round for the European Securitization Awards — please see the shortlists below
Thank you to everyone who helped us determine these shortlists via the nominations process that ran between November and early January. We were very encouraged by the level of market engagement.
The vast majority of categories have, like last year, five names to choose from. In a few instances the numbers are slightly more or less than five. This reflects how exceptionally tight the vote was in those categories. We also took in-depth soundings from well placed market professionals on the validity of certain nominations.
Please read through the instructions carefully to ensure that your votes are counted accurately.
Please fill out the information required in the survey. This will be kept entirely confidential and will be used only to ensure that votes are valid.
All awards will be voted on by market participants, with the exception of “Overall Bank of the Year”, "Private Securitization of the Year" and “Overall Deal of the Year”. If you wish to pitch for any of these three awards, please contact Sophie Astles on firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no cap on the numbers voting from any given institution, and no requirement to answer every question. We reserve the right to weight votes by seniority, job role, institution or similar considerations. In general, little weight will be placed on votes for one’s own institution and considerable weight placed on votes for counterparties.
A vote from a portfolio manager at a major securitization investor, for example, would count more heavily than that of a rating agency analyst in determining the “Secondary ABS/RMBS trading house” award, while a regular issuer’s vote for arranging bank would be particularly valuable.
We encourage you to distribute the survey widely among clients, counterparties and within your own institutions, but urge you to avoid ‘block voting’, in which every response form is identical, and for everyone involved to consider their choices individually. We reserve the right to strip out suspected block votes in tabulating the final category winners.
All votes will be strictly confidential. However, we reserve the right to publish aggregated and fully anonymised figures by institution category — for example, “X% of investors voted for Y” — at our discretion.
You do not have to complete the entire survey for your votes to be counted.
Respondents are allowed to vote for their own deal or firms — however, as we said above, little weight will be placed on votes for one’s own institution and considerable weight placed on votes for counterparties. Votes should reflect firm and deal activity for the 2021 calendar year.
The poll will close on February 25 2021 and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in April.
This is a special award entirely at the discretion of GC Editorial. However, informal suggestions are welcome — please get in touch with Toby Fildes on +44 207 779 7327 or email@example.com
Previous winners have been Rob Ford, founding partner of TwentyFour 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.
GlobalCapital reserves the right to disqualify any votes it deems invalid.
Market outlook survey
As we did last year, we would also like to test the temperature of the securitization market and ask its view on what it sees are the main threats and opportunities — as well as its thoughts on how spreads are likely to perform over the coming months. Please see the end of the survey for these outlook questions. Your views are greatly appreciated. We’ll publish the overall results at the same time as the Awards.
Thank you again for your support and hopefully see you all soon — in person! — at our Awards Dinner in May.
