RISK.net is now inviting entries for the Buy-Side Awards 2016.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday 1st September. Interviews with short-listed firms will take place during September and October. And the awards will be presented at a dinner on Wednesday 30th November 2016 at The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London.
Once you have downloaded the entry form and completed it, please send it to Rob Mannix via email@example.com by the 5th September.
We are asking entrants to submit a pitch document detailing why they should win in a given category. Details of the awards categories and the criteria for each are here.
All pitch documents and subsequent interviews with our editorial team relating to the awards will be treated as off the record.
There is no prescribed format and no minimum or maximum length for submissions. But they should describe the firm's approach, how it has adapted to market and regulatory change, and how the firm has performed over the past year.
In particular, applicants must give specific examples of customer problems, detailing how the firm addressed them, why specific solutions were chosen and setting out the benefits for the customer. We are asking for client references (names, email addresses, phone numbers). Client feedback will be one of the most important influences on the selection of winners.
Once again, entries close on Thursday 1st September. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
