LatinFinance 2014 Infrastructure Finance Awards
LatinFinance's Infrastructure Finance Awards recognize the most impressive transactions and institutions in a field critical to the region's economic progress.
The awards are decided by LatinFinance's editorial staff, informed by:
> Information and pitches provided by market participants
> Market opinion, taken by public vote
> Data, including transaction details
The period under consideration will be June 1 2013 to May 31 2014.
Banks, law firms, and companies working in infrastructure finance may nominate up to two transactions in each category for consideration. Institutions may support their nominations with documentation, by way of pitch books. They may also schedule a meeting with the judging team to explain the case for each of their nominations. Institutions may submit pitches between May 19 and June 6 to firstname.lastname@example.org . The judging panel will be available for pitch meetings between June 9 and June 25.
Votes from market participants will inform the selection of the winners.
LatinFinance invites bankers, portfolio managers, credit analysts, funding officials, CFOs and other infrastructure market participants to vote on the shortlist. Each person may only vote once. Voters may not vote for their own company or an affiliated one. Individuals and companies are allowed to pass details of the voting process to their clients and peers.
A shortlist of deals and institutions in each category will be compiled from the pitches described in step 1 above. Voters may indicate an institution or transaction on the shortlist, or nominate another.
Voting is open online from June 16 and June 22.
Votes are kept strictly confidential and will not be disclosed.
Examination of financial data
LatinFinance will research transaction data and other publicly available information for each of the nominated transactions and institutions. As is relevant in each category, such data will include, but will not be limited to: presentations on the projects being financed, stock exchange filings, transaction pricing details, secondary market trading data.
LatinFinance's editorial team retains discretion over the final allocation of awards in each category. The final decision will be based on pitches, market votes, research of financial data, and feedback on transactions over the course of the past 12 months.
