REC Awards 2018: The nominations deadline is looming

There is just one week left to submit your entries for REC’s prestigious annual awards.

If you think your organisation, or another industry player, deserves to be shortlisted for one of Real Estate Capital’s 2018 awards, you have one week to let us know.

The deadline for nominations is midnight on Wednesday 28 November. Thank you to those who have already made submissions. To the rest of you, please click on our form to make your nomination.

The fifth edition of our annual awards will celebrate the outstanding organisations from Europe’s real estate finance market. Our awards are totally independent – with no sponsorship or panel of judges, the industry decides the winner in each category.

This year, 22 categories are up for grabs. In the process to determine impartial shortlists – which will feature four candidates and a fifth, blank option for firms not nominated for each category – we will be analysing your submissions, canvassing opinion from senior industry players and conducting in-depth discussions within the editorial team. Submissions are not a prerequisite and do not guarantee inclusion.

Real Estate Capital will be back in touch to let you know where to register your votes. Polling will be open in early December and the winners will be announced next March.

The categories are:

1. Bank lender of the year

2. Insurance company lender of the year
