*** mtn-i 2011 AWARDS INVITATION ***
Your nominations are invited for the mtn-i 2011 Global & European MTN, Structured Product and Funding Awards.
The charity auction at this year’s London Awards Dinner contributed to the GBP13,000 raised for GAVI since 2010.
Nomination Deadline: 5th December 2011
Pitch Week: 5th to 11th December 2011
Awards Dinner: 9th February 2012
Awards Magazine Publication Date: 9th February 2012
Dealers and issuers from over 40 institutions enjoyed this year’s night of networking and celebration.
Your nominations are invited
It’s time to nominate your deals and institutional performances for mtn-i’s 2011 8th Global and European MTN, Structured Product and Funding Awards.
We’ve announced and presented our America’s and Asia Pacific Awards in Miami and Hong Kong earlier this year. The European Awards are open to European issuers and European investor targeted solutions while the Global Awards are an opportunity to get collective recognition for your institution or your solutions across all three regions. If you consider that a 2011 America’s or Asia Pacific regional recognition has global importance it could also be be a contender for a Global Award.
This year’s awards dinner will again be held at the St Pauls Grange Hotel on the night of Thursday 9th February. Last year 140 dealers and clients representing 40 institutions celebrated the market’s achievements on the night. As you can see from the photos, issuers, dealers and their clients greatly enjoyed the chance to catch up face to face and were entertained by host and presenter, writer and broadcaster Paul Ross. The charity auction raised another GBP3,000 for GAVI – the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation taking to GBP13,000 the total mtn-i has raised since 2010.
The St Pauls Grange Hotel Ballroom is once again the location for this year’s dinner with it’s stunning pillar of light in the atrium.
The Categories are…
You are invited to nominate dealers and issuers in each of the following categories for both European and Global performances.
- Landmark Deals
- Investor Solutions
- Institutional Performances
- The Editor’s Award
Non-syndicated vanilla and structured MTNs and debt private placements are eligible.
Who and what can win?
Whether you are a dealer or an issuer you can nominate individual deals, strategies, innovations and your institution’s overall performance in 2011. Or of course all of these! We are looking for Landmark Deals, Institutional Performances, Investor Solutions and the Editor’s Awards. These broad categories are designed to reflect the diversity and flexibility of these markets. Market’s that thrive on the ability to innovate products and solution. We don’t want to limit the possibilities for recognition.
And the winner is!
Our goal as always – is to build a showcase of MTN, Structured Note and Funding achievement that spotlights how these markets have met the needs of issuers and investors in another difficult year.
Right now there are are so many genuine reasons for European and Global pessimism. But just as in 2008 Awards when across the market we found 100 crunch beating deals, strategies and performances – we believe that once again our awards can serve to highlight the valuable contributions this market is making in the latest phase of the crisis. So please pitch and prove us right! Not just for your own glorification but for the market!
Writer and broadcaster Paul Ross hosted and entertained this year’s awards dinner – mtn-i’s biggest ever.
How can you pitch?
It’s up to you. You can send us a list of deals and your thoughts. You can send us a power point presentation. You can pitch on the phone. You can pitch us face to face. You can call us up and bounce ideas around. We welcome any and all of these.
In the mean time the editorial team will be reviewing this year’s coverage, checking mtn-i’s key MTN and Structured Product tables and thinking about the big challenges of this year for borrowers and investors and which deals and institutions have met those.

Should I pitch?

Institutional Performance and Investor Solution Awards
Dealers, issuers and investors are eligible for Institutional Performance recognitions in both the European and Global Awards categories. The Investor Solutions category puts the focus on products and delivery that have met the needs of investors and can recognise dealer and investment management performance.
We are looking for the strategies, execution and achievement that provided the most valuable funding, investment product and investment management solutions in 2010. It could be performance in a single asset class, currency, client group or market. Or it could be the strength of an institution’s delivery across the board that is recognised.
Leadership, excellence or innovation by issuers or dealers in any funding/product area can be recognised in this category.
The European and Global Landmark Deals awards will showcase the best MTN and structured notes in 2010.
Entries could be your biggest and most innovative structures or MTNs that have opened a new market, new investor access, inspired a new product sector, garnered global appeal or be an ingenious solution to a specific investor or issuer problem.
This category is for performance that does not fit traditional segments or expectations in both the Global and European award categories. In the past, winners have included an innovative MTN programme that financed the funding of immunisation, a web-based retail MTN platform, a team raising funding against the odds, and an ultra-successful MTN dealing start-up.
