IFR Asia Awards Process

Categories for the 2019 IFR Asia Awards will be announced in September and published here.  At that point, in order to help with our selections, banks, advisers and issuers may submit brief written presentations along with supporting data.

Our journalists will also organise pitch meetings.  However, pitching is entirely optional and consideration for an award will not be limited to advisers or issuers that participate in this way.  All written pitches should reach us by October 14 2019.

We continue to monitor the market until the end of the awards year (the period in which deals must price for consideration) and banks may submit addenda to include significant deals that price after submitting their pitches.  The awards year runs from November 16 2018 to November 14 2019.

Winners will be announced here in mid-December, as well as in the Review of the Year supplement that’s published with the magazine.

IFR Asia Award winners will be presented with their trophies and/or certificates at the 2019 IFR Asia Awards Dinner, which will be held on Tuesday February 25 2020 at Grosvenor House, London.

More information on the pitching process and the Awards Dinners will be published here in September but, in the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact paul.holliday@refinitiv.com.
