IJGlobal Awards 2021 – North America shortlist

IJ is pleased to reveal today the shortlist for the North America company section of the IJGlobal Awards 2021, to be hosted at Gotham Hall in New York on 17 March.

Once the portal went live in December 2021, submissions poured in with over 1300 recorded. However, while deal awards are decided in-house – the company awards are selected by an independent panel of experienced infrastructure professionals. 

On 1 February, judges gathered virtually to discuss and debate the merits of each of these company submissions with any conflict of interest eliminated by asking experts to recuse themselves from categories that they operate it (financial adviser recused from this category, financial institutions recused from the bank and bond arranger categories and so forth).

IJGlobal would like to once again thank all those individuals for participating in what proved to be a lively judging session.

While voting was in secret, the discussions that took place ensured that judges already had a pretty good idea of who the winners were…but Chatham house rules so companies will have to wait until 17 March to find out whether they have won!
