Keep the Deals of the Decade nominations coming

Our assessment of the most ground-breaking private debt transactions of the last 10 years will be featured in our November issue.

Private Debt Investor has received a strong response so far for our Deals of the Decade, a list of the asset class’s most important transactions, which will be published as part of our November 2022 issue.

This is a reminder that the deadline for nominations is Friday 26 August 2022, so you have around two and a half more weeks to submit them to us here. Please send any queries to

You are expected to include details, in no more than 500 words, regarding the merits of the transaction in question. The deal must have been completed between August 2012 and August 2022.

We have been asked whether the list is restricted to direct lending transactions: the answer is no. We’ll consider the full spectrum of private debt, including distressed debt, junior/mezzanine and speciality finance.

Any information included in the nomination should be suitable for publication.

Firms and PRs are welcome to submit nominations, but no more than a single nomination per firm.

Our senior editorial team will decide the composition of the list ahead of its publication in the November 2022 issue of PDI.

So get those nominations in: we’re waiting to hear from you!
