PEI’s Future 40 Class of 2021: Submit your nominations

Private Equity International is pleased to announce that nominations are open for its third annual rising stars of private equity list. PEI’s 40 under 40: Future Leaders of Private Equity list will be published online and in our Future of Private Equity Special in May.

Submit your nomination by Monday 22 February here.

The list will feature individuals across five categories:

  • Investor
  • Fundraiser
  • Dealmaker
  • Lawyer
  • Operator

Please note the list is 40 in total, not per category.

To be eligible, nominees should be under the age of 40 on 1 May 2021. Nominees should not have appeared in the 2019 or 2020 Future 40 lists.

PEI’s senior editorial team will decide the list based on three criteria:

  • Evidence of leadership and innovation;
  • The calibre of the firms/clients they have worked with and any deals they have generated;
  • Whether they possess an X factor that marks them out as a future leader in private equity.
