LatinFinance's 2019 Project & Infrastructure Finance Awards are decided by LatinFinance's editors, following an extensive research process. The key elements of each step of the process are outlined below.
Banks, law firms, and companies working in infrastructure finance may nominate one transaction in each category for consideration. Please click on the "Nominations" tab above for more information about nominating a transaction or institution.
LatinFinance will discuss the relative merits of shortlisted transactions at institutions with a wide range of market participants. Institutions that submit nominations may at the same time request a call or meeting with LatinFinance's judging panel to discuss their submission.
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 and 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 nominations, market consultation, research of financial data and feedback on transactions over the course of the past 12 months.
Winners will be informed by July 2, 2019, with the news embargoed until publication of the Fall 2019 edition of LatinFinance. Awards will be presented at LatinFinance’s Project & Infrastructure Finance Awards Dinner in October 2019.
