Nominations invited for the PEI Awards 2016

The Private Equity International Awards 2016 are the only ones voted on entirely by industry participants and this year include a category for Secondaries Law Firm of the Year.

The process to determine sister publication Private Equity International’s annual industry award winners has begun and this year, it comes with a twist.

Our awards continue to be the industry’s chance to pick out the top managers, investors, advisors and transactions of the last 12 months. This time around, would-be winners are invited to submit entries detailing their greatest achievements from the period.

We will also still be considering those that don’t send in submissions, based on our assessment of their achievements over the last year.

This year’s awards encompass 65 categories for evaluation across EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. Besides our long-standing categories, the new categories are Law Firm of the Year (Secondaries) and Turkey Firm of the Year.

Following extensive internal evaluation and debate, the prevailing nominations will be published as a shortlist. You will have your chance to vote from the top four nominees in each category in an open process that is independent of sponsors or judges. The winners will reflect the esteem in which they are held by peers.

The secondaries categories for EMEA, Americas and Asia-Pacific are:

  • Firm of the Year
  • Deal of the Year
  • Advisor of the Year
  • Law Firm of the year

Firms should use this confidential link to tell PEI about their milestones in the past 12 months by 17 November for consideration. Shortlists will be revealed and voting will open in early December.
