Voting for this year's Unquote British Private Equity Awards is approaching its deadline – pick your winners before 23 September at 5pm.
With all entries reviewed over the summer, our judging panel has selected a shortlist of contenders in each category.
With a strong field of contenders vying for the top spot in incredibly challenging times, Unquote readers are now invited to vote for the teams they feel best deserve recognition at the British Private Equity Awards 2022. Each shortlisted entry has a statement that outlines the firm's achievements over the judging period.
Voting will close at 5pm on 23 September.
The survey results will be considered alongside the judging panel's decisions to determine the winners, which will be announced in October.
The awards are designed to showcase innovation, resilience and excellence within the UK private equity industry during the judging period. Given the exceptional circumstances of the coronavirus outbreak, firms were also invited to share how their strategy, but also their own operations, have evolved to remain resilient in the current market. More information on the process can be found on our Awards website.
