PDI Rising Stars 2024: Voting is now open!

Private Debt Investor is pleased to announce that nominations are open for the Rising Stars of Private Debt 2024 list.

The deadline for submissions is end of day Friday 9 August 2024. Nominations can be submitted here.

The list will feature individuals across five categories:

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

Please note the list is 40 in total, not per category.

To be eligible, nominees should be under the age of 40 on 1 November 2024. Nominees should not have appeared in any previous PDI Rising Stars list.

PDI’s senior editorial team will decide on the composition of the list ahead of its publication in the Future of Private Debt report, which will appear alongside the November 2024 issue of PDI.

The list will be based on several criteria including:

  • Evidence of leadership and innovation;
  • The calibre of the firms/clients they have worked with and any deals they have generated;
  • Whether they possess an ‘X factor’ that marks them out as a future leader in private debt.

You can find out who appeared in PDI’s 2022 Rising Stars of Private Debt list here.
