The call for nominations for GlobalCapital’s European Securitization Awards is now open.

As ever, the award winners are decided through a two-step process. Nominations make up the first stage of the process.

The call for nominations is open to anyone active in the securitization market. A full list of categories can be found below.

Using these nominations, the GlobalCapital editorial team will compile a shortlist for each category. This will be published in early 2023 and opened to voting by the market to choose the winners.

Below is an overview, while full details can be found in the separate links below.

Polled Awards – call for nominations

The polled awards make up the vast majority of the European Securitization Awards. As of November 22, the call for nominations is open and anyone active in the European securitization market can nominate up to two organisations or deals for each award, including your own organisation or deal.

If you are nominating your organisation or deal, you are encouraged to provide a short submission to support your nomination (maximum one side of A4).

Then, the GlobalCapital editorial team compiles a shortlist for each award category. This is down to our discretion, but your nominations are a key part of our decision making process. Ultimately though, our aim is to compile a representative and credible shortlist in each category. These shortlists will then be opened to a market vote for the winners in January 2023.

To make your nominations, click HERE.

Pitched Awards

Alongside the polled awards, there are three prestigious awards that are pitched: Overall Bank of the Year, Overall Deal of the Year and Private Securitization of the Year.

Pitches will be held with the editorial team between 18 January and 22 February 2023.

If you would like to pitch, please get in touch with Sophie Astles, awards research editor.

The aim of the pitched awards is to get the most detailed understanding of each bank or transaction and celebrate those that have led the market in 2022 or brought important innovations to the European securitization market.

Outstanding Contribution

This award recognises individuals who have made huge contributions to the development of the market over the course of their careers, and who command universal respect among their peers.

Previous winners have been Richard Hopkin of Afme; Rob Ford at 24 Asset Management; Max Bronzwaer, group treasurer of Obvion; and Alex Batchvarov, who runs securitization research at Bank of America.

This is a special award entirely at the discretion of GlobalCapital. However, informal suggestions are welcome — please get in touch with Sophie Astles if you would like to make a nomination.
