Awards for Excellence 2020 submission guidelines

GLOBAL AWARDS [download pdf]

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on individuals, societies, economies and industries. In order to reflect the extraordinary circumstances during the first and second quarter 2020, the review period has been extended to cover the 14 months from May 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.

We have taken time to reflect on the how the current crisis affects our annual Awards for Excellence programme. In all categories, your ability to adapt your business to changing circumstances, provide solutions to clients, keep markets and funding channels open and protect all your stakeholders will be important considerations.

ADDITIONAL NEW GLOBAL AWARD: We will also be recognising a select group of banks in our new Global Excellence in Leadership awards. Our editorial team has been hugely impressed by the swift reaction of many banks across the world in responding to the Covid-19 crisis. The Excellence in Leadership awards will recognise these efforts.

We want to hear from you directly about what you have done for your employees, your clients, your own business and your societies and economies. There will be no individual categories for these awards. We anticipate that up to six banks globally will be recognised in this way.
