Nominate now for our Rising Stars 2020!

PDI wants to know who you think are the most talented of the up-and-coming generation in private debt – and give them a chance of making our second top 30 list.

Private Debt Investor is delighted to announce the opening of nominations for our second 30 rising stars of private debt list. The inaugural list was produced last year.

To be eligible, nominees should be under the age of 40 on 1 October 2020.

Nominations should be sent to by Tuesday 30 June 2020 stating which of the following five categories they are being entered for:

  • GP
  • LP
  • Lawyer
  • Corporate finance/debt advisory
  • Placement agent/fundraising advisory

Please note the list is 30 in total, not per category.

You are expected to include details, in no more than 500 words, regarding what the person has achieved to make them worthy of inclusion on the list, and any specific deals they have worked on or career achievements.

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

To be eligible, nominees must include the name of someone at another firm whom they consider worthy of joining the list and say why.

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

Our senior editorial team will decide the composition of the list ahead of its publication in the Future of Private Debt report, which will come out with the October 2020 issue of PDI.
