It’s been a year of unprecedented growth for private debt as an asset class. Countless new firms stepped into the market, whilst a slew of veteran managers continued to scale their businesses by launching new funds, acquiring complementary platforms, and building out their teams.
Dealflow has been strong, buoyed in part by the seemingly inexhaustible supply of refinancing opportunities but also by resurgent M&A markets.
We’re now giving you the opportunity to vote on who you think stood out in an increasingly crowded marketplace. In our target geographies – the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific – we’d like you to vote for you think shone this year.
The shortlists were compiled after extensive internal debate amongst our editorial team, having spoken at length to market sources. These awards are the only ones decided entirely by the industry, for the industry. There's no sponsor, no panel of judges. If you disagree with our selection, we urge you to make use of the “Other (Please specify)” box to make your own selection.
These are your awards. Use them to tell us which of your peers you think has had a stand-out year.

Results will be published in our Annual Review, due out in March. Voting will close at midnight PST on Friday, 10 January 2014.
