2011 awards: One week to go!

That’s all the time you have left to make your opinions count as we seek to establish who were the best-of-breed in 45 different categories within the infrastructure asset class last year. Some of the categories are still much too close to call.

Voting in the Infrastructure Investor 2011 awards poll is now open for just one more week (until midnight on January 20, 2012). The chance is still there for you to make a difference and ensure that the most deserving recipients get their dues (to vote, click here).

We would say this wouldn’t we….but if you could see the results unfolding, as we can, you would be equally astonished at the slimness of margins separating first from second in many categories despite the gratifyingly large number of votes we have received.

Indeed, in a few of the categories, it’s close to a three-way tie. For example, you’d be very hard pressed at this point to say whether Brookfield Asset Management , First Reserve or Global Infrastructure Partners will emerge victorious in the North American Fund Manager of the Year category. Example two: 3i Infrastructure, Macquarie and Morgan Stanley Infrastructure find themselves more or less locked together in the equivalent Asian category.

Meanwhile, in the prestigious Global Fund Manager vote, we see a tight battle developing between Meridiam Infrastructure and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. And in the North America Developer category, it’s looking like an ACS versus Balfour Beatty shoot-out.

These are just some of the examples of tights contests that are catching our attention – there are others, too. Remember: you can vote in as many or as few categories as you wish. The outcomes will then be announced in our annual review, which accompanies the March 2012 issue of Infrastructure Investor.
