And the Americas Award Winners are…

Structured Americas Awards: Rebranding, rewiring, digitising & diversifying!

Our 2017 Awards reflect Structured Notes’ rapid evolution across the Americas in the last year! They highlight markets that are more resilient, creative and forward-looking than ever before.

Factoring in everything from near-term political uncertainties to the future of the planet, the Americas have delivered an exciting pack of new yield solutions which mtn-i is proud to recognise today!

But that’s not all. The market is rebrandingrewiringdigitising and diversifying.

To plug into this powerful story click here for all our winners. And click here to book your pass to meet the winners and hear some of them speak after our poolside lunch on April 6th at the Four Seasons, Miami. We will be following up with the full line-up of award-winning Showcase speakers in the coming days!

Bold rebranding!

Not the least of these is a rebranding! Incapital’s bold branding and advertising initiative for Market-Linked Securities has reframed the benefits of these investor solutions without the toxic associations of their former label – an Editor’s Award – winning effort.

New kids on the block!

For some years the US market issuer and dealer space had been a fixed universe of counterparties – but no more!

New issuer and dealer entrants are transforming the landscape. Our Rising Star awards put the spotlight on these exiting new players. 

Walls no barrier!

Borders between the Americas may be tightening, but at least one firm has pioneered a product that has found no barriers to demand from Brazil and Mexico through to the US and Canada!

Pick of the pack!

Our Deals of the Year and Investor Solutions awards target the big themes of the moment! They position investors to max out returns on rising rates and protect the downside amid toppy equity markets, political uncertainty and even the building of that big wall! They embrace some much longer-term trends too, such as the ageing population and climate change.

Investors included!

For the first time in the Americas our awards also recognise the role of investors and their representatives in shaping and originating deals – particularly in the green space. BlackRock, Maryland State Treasury and Pimco are among the buyers recognised.

Our 11th Annual Americas Structured Note Awards are our most exciting ever – which means our Showcase and Awards on April 6th is set to be the most interesting event yet! If you want to get inspired and connected with the brightest minds, the best issuers and the most inventive dealers – don’t miss it!

Reserve your seat and your table now for April 6th’s Miami Lunch, Showcase and Dinner.

What a night! The 14th Global MTN Showcase & Awards

What a night!

A record turnout, £6,000 raised for children’s charities and even the voice of Apple’s Siri all helped mtn-i’s 14th Annual MTN Awards night on Thursday go off with some extra fizz!

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!

Dealers, Issuers and Investors of the Year!

Recognition this year ranged across private placement markets, embracing Euro PPs, Schuldscheine, N-Bonds and Green Bonds as well as traditional MTN and structured notes.

Citi and HSBC were MTN and Private Placement Houses of the Year, respectively, while the IFC scooped the Issuer of the Year award.

JP Morgan won Structured MTN Dealer of the Year, while our Editor’s Award honoured Credit Suisse for its cross-asset structuring platform. Central Bank of Algeria scooped our Investor of the Year Award.

Inspirational showcase!

During the lunch and Showcase that preceded the awards dinner, market strategists unpacked the various possible outcomes of Trump, Brexit and the upcoming European elections on markets…

The mtn-i editorial team picked out a dozen of the private debt market’s hot spots poised for further growth in 2017!

Nine issuers and dealers pitched their credits and trade ideas…

…and to wrap things up the market’s leading private market dealers, issuers and investors considered the future of private debt markets.

£6,000 for CATS and Free To Be Kids!

The generous donation of auction items and bidders on the night raised £6,000 for two children’s charities.

CATs, the charity founded by ex-Dresdner MTN Trader Daniel Lewi who was there on the night, supports families and children affected by Tay-Sachs disease.

We were also honoured to be joined by Free To be Kids founder Rachel Nichols. Free to be Kids provides residential therapeutic adventures and activities for vulnerable children.

As a start-up ourselves (now 15 years old) mtn-i is proud to be supporting innovative charity start-ups and give them long-term support.

Since our award dinners started we’ve raised over £80,000 for vulnerable and sick children.
