The Republic of Poland, the EBRD, EDF, ESM, KfW, the IFC and Qatar National Bank were among the illustrious list of borrowers recognised among over 40 institutions represented by nearly 200 attendees.

Jon Briggs (aka Siri) announced the winners while Nick Martland’s band played them onto the stage – the lucky ones got Bond themes!
