Methodology:


The eligible awards period is for business conducted between July 2019 and August 2020. 

Lead managers, issuers and investors each have an equal weighting in the final tally. 

The first vote from each institution in each category is the one that counts, unless otherwise directed. 

Banks within a single network are considered as a single institution. 

Lead managers will have syndicated at least one publicly distributed benchmark in the eligible period. 

Issuers should have launched at least one publicly placed transaction of €250m or more in the past 18 months. Investors must have bought covered bonds, with the more active gaining a larger weighting. 

In the event one institution is voted for across multiple award categories, only one choice will be counted.
