What can win?

  • You can nominate deals, issuers, dealers and investors.

What are the categories?

  • Landmark Deals – trades which opened markets to new buyers or new issuers, or deals which packaged new payoff and underlyings. Or new funding solutions for borrowers. They could be deals which lead key Asia Pacific product categories. They could be the biggest deals of the year or or they could be a small deal that seeded the start of a new trend.

Or it could be your institution’s performance across all asset classes and parts of the region. You can be as specific or expansive as you think fit.
  • Editors Awards – recognise performances, deals, ideas and initiatives which defy conventional categorisation.

How do we enter?

  • You can pitch by email, powerpoint, conference call, face to face. The mtn-i editorial team will as always independently review our comprehensive data and daily Breaking Asia coverage for ideas. So a termsheet, data disclosure or a nudge in the right direction might be all that’s required to get our attention and recognition.
