With only a matter of days left to vote in the inaugural New Private Markets Global Awards, we have taken an early peek at the current standings to see where the race is particularly finely balanced.
All 16 categories remain open races, with three in particular balancing on a knife edge.
Impact Firm of the Year (Climate and Nature): At the time of writing, a staggeringly slim two-vote margin separates the front-runners in this closely watched category. Your vote could have a material impact. Shortlisted firms: Ara Partners, Just Climate, KKR, TPG Rise.
Impact Firm of the Year (Circular Economy): Possibly the most open category, a mere 31 votes separate first place from fourth place for the circular economy title; it could still be anyone’s. Shortlisted firms: Ambienta, Closed Loop Partners, North Sky Capital, Summa Equity.
Infrastructure Firm of the Year (ESG): This category is as tightly contested as they come: just two votes separate the two front-runners, with third place just eight votes further behind. Shortlisted firms: Actis, Ardian, IFM Investors, Schroders Greencoat.
There are 16 categories in total. The polls close at 11:59pm PST this Friday, 5 January, 2024.
Please remember that you may only vote once per category, you may not vote for yourself or your own firm, all votes are confidential and you are not required to vote in all categories – simply vote in those that are of interest to you.
