PDI Awards 2016: The starting gun has been fired!

We are now seeking your votes for our annual awards in more than 40 categories. Read on to find out more.

The Private Debt Investor annual awards poll is now open, and you may register your choices in more than 40 different categories by clicking HERE.

In addition to a number of global categories, our awards cover the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific regions. Categories include Lender of the Year, Deal of the Year, Fundraising of the Year and Investor of the Year among many others.

As you would expect, selecting the shortlists has been an enjoyable but also challenging task. In many categories, there were many more worthy contenders than the four that ended up being chosen.

But what we can promise is that a very thorough process has been undertaken, including countless debates and reflections among editorial team members as well as many conversations with the market.

Also, for the first time, we encouraged submissions from contenders so that we could be reminded of their key achievements during the year. This provided some very useful material for us to refer to.

A quick reminder of the rules: votes will be accepted from your company email address only; you may not vote for yourself or your own firm; you may vote only once; and we encourage you to make selections in as many categories as possible, although you do not have to vote in all of them.

Voting closes at midnight PST on Thursday, 5 January 2017. But why not set aside 15-30 minutes and get it done right now? We’ll be eagerly awaiting the results.
