The FinanceAsia team is delighted to open up submissions to our annual Country Awards, which recognise the best banks, brokers and law firms across Asia, plus rating agencies in China.
For the third year running, this is taking place amid a global pandemic – with Asia in particular – still feeling the social and economic effects of continued uncertainty.
However, Asia’s finance industry remains resilient and we look forward to showcasing the market participants that have demonstrated commitment to supporting their clients alongside government schemes.
Once again, our editorial team will be supported by an Advisory Board of current and former high-ranking senior bankers and fund managers.
This external panel will provide technical guidance and advice during the selection process. We will reveal the names in due course.
We look forward to receiving your nominations!
