Welcome to the 2017 IFR Awards

The categories for the 2017 IFR Awards have been announced and we now invite banks to submit their pitches.

Final selections for winners will be made by the senior editorial team and the winners will be announced in the IFR Review of the Year, published at www.ifre.com on December 15, and with the December 16 issue of IFR.

The Awards will be presented at the annual IFR Awards Dinner, taking place at Grosvenor House, London in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal, Patron of Save the Children, on January 30 2018.

Table Bookings
Table booking will soon be live.  As with every year, tables are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis – so it is advisable to book early.  If you’d like to be informed as soon as it is possible to book a table, please email paul.holliday@thomsonreuters.com to be added to the priority list.

Pitching for an Award
Categories for the 2017 IFR Awards will be announced in September.  We invite banks to send us pitches by mid-October.  However, pitching is entirely optional and consideration for an award will not be limited to advisers or issuers that participate in this way.   For more information on the Awards process, see the Awards Process page.
