Entries must be submitted in Word format and as a rule of thumb, between five and six pages is the optimum length (approx. 3500-4000 words).

This year will see an important change to the judging methodology. An expert judging panel will be assembled, consisting of executives from private banks, advisers, distributors and issuing dealers. Senior journalists will also be on the judging panel. Members of the panel will only judge those categories applicable to their areas of expertise.

Winners will be decided on the strength of their written entries alone.

Pitches will be treated as off-the-record - as usual - but firms should be aware that the documents will be seen by the judging panels, who will be treating them as confidential. The exception to this are client testimonials, which are on-the-record (see below).

Client testimonials:
This year we are asking entrants to include client testimonials, rather than the details of clients who are happy to be contacted. Please aim to include testimonials from at least three clients, commenting on work you did with them over the past 12 months.

Entry structuring:
Your entry can be structured as you wish, but should include milestones from the previous 12 months, including key metrics such as revenue statistics, issuance volumes or assets under management; a thematic discussion of the firm's achievements over that time; and case studies that demonstrate how particular problems were overcome, how a certain deal was structured, or where you believe outstanding client service was provided.

To give entrants the best chance of winning, we urge you to showcase everything you're most proud of from the past 12 months - be it landmark deals, client wins, new technology or successful risk management. A combination of breadth and depth of information will be helpful to the judging panel.

The deadline is 28 July 2017. Late submission will only be considered at the editor's discretion. Any questions on submissions should be directed to

Good luck!
