Voted for by thousands of readers, the annual Private Debt Investor Awards remain the only rankings that are decided solely by the industry for the industry.
Deciding the winners is a painstaking process. Every November, our global edit team starts canvassing the views of colleagues and contacts in the market to find out which firms, funds and deals stood out from the crowd during the Decade. A four-strong shortlist is voted on by readers every December, with the results published every March.
To decide who had set the benchmark during the past decade, we looked back through each year to see who picked up the most awards in the main categories. So congratulations to the winners, who are a big reason why the industry has grown to where it is today.
