Nominations open: FinanceAsia Achievement Awards 2013

FinanceAsia is accepting submissions for its annual end-of-year Achievement Awards.

FinanceAsia is pleased to accept submissions for its annual end-of-year Achievement Awards, recognising excellence in finance in Asia. Please download our PDF for more details.

Submissions are due by Friday, November 1. Each submission must include a brief pitch in a Word document format of no more than 700 words explaining why your institution deserves to win a given award. Supporting documentation is welcome but it is essential your firm outlines in clear language the key reasons justifying your submission.

Please email submissions to [email protected]. You may also send hard copies to Amber Daswani, 23/f, the Centrium, 60 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong.

If a deal occurs after the submission date, you may add them as a supplement until the end of November. The final decision will be made by our editorial team in early December and announced online at the week of December 9.

Please contact our editor at [email protected] to book time to present pitches. We will attend pitch meetings from November 18 to November 29.

We will be awarding financial institutions in the categories outlined below, including House awards and Deal awards.

In addition, we may also give awards to the best deal in a particular country. Please submit only one deal award per country. Please do not submit deals for Japan or Australia/New Zealand, which are considered separately.

The period under consideration for these awards is January 1, 2013 to the date we announce the awards.

We use Dealogic data for our decisions. If you choose to use another league table provider please also include Dealogic’s league table and reconcile the differences. We do not give full credit for self-led deals.
