Nominate now for our Rising Stars 2019!

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 inaugural top 20 list.

Private Debt Investor is delighted to announce the opening of nominations for our first-ever top 20 rising stars of private debt list.

To be eligible, nominees should be under the age of 40 on 1 April 2019.

Nominations should be sent to by Thursday 14 February 2019 stating which of the following five categories they are being entered for:

Corporate finance / debt advisory
Placement agent / fundraiser

Please note the list is 20 in total, not per category.

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

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

To be eligible, nominees must include the name of someone at another firm that 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.

PDI’s senior editorial team will decide the composition of the list ahead of its publication in the April 2019 issue of PDI.
