Don’t miss your chance to cast your votes in the 2021 Private Equity International Awards. Voting ends on 12 January 2022.


This marks the 20th anniversary of our awards: since 2001, we have given industry specialists the chance to have their say on the leading firms, deals and much more within the global private equity space.

Votes have been pouring in, with more than 7,000 received so far across 72 categories spanning the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA, as well as global, strategy and secondaries sections.

Current results in many of the categories are very close and everything can change in the final week of voting, so make sure you register your picks today.

To help you navigate the voting process, we’ve drawn up a shortlist for each category based on our coverage throughout the year, our conversations with the market and your submissions.

You can also add your own choice, if you feel that the rightful winner isn’t on our list.

Here’s a recap of the rules for voting:

  • You may only vote once
  • You may not vote for yourself or your own firm (such votes will not be counted)
  • You are not required to vote in all categories – only those of interest to you (but we encourage you to fill in as many as you can)
  • Non-corporate email addresses will be discounted (so no Gmail or Hotmail addresses)

The polls close at 11:59pm PST on Wednesday 12 January, 2022, with the results revealed in March.

Good luck to all nominees, and happy voting!
