It’s that time of the year again. No, not Christmas (well, that too) – it’s time to vote in our Infrastructure Investor Awards 2015, which you can do now by clicking here until voting closes on 8 January 2016.
The seventh edition of our annual awards is our biggest and best yet, with 55 categories spanning the globe. Twenty-fifteen was a year of exceptional deal flow, with our global deal of the year shortlist of four alone accounting for a staggering $21.5 billion of M&A.
It was also a year that saw the industry’s two largest fund managers – Global Infrastructure Partners and Brookfield Asset Management – start raising their record-breaking third infrastructure vehicles. The latter, if they hit their respective hard-caps, will raise a combined $27 billion, probably turning 2016 into a record-breaking fundraising year.
These are just two themes that emerged from this year’s awards and there will be many other stories to tell when we publish our winners’ list in next March’s Annual Review 2015 supplement. In the meantime, you can refresh your memory by clicking here to access our Annual Review 2014 and having a look at last year’s winners.
