WELCOME TO THE ALT CREDIT INTELLIGENCE US SERVICES AWARDS

The Awards will return on February 20, 2019 at The Harvard Club, New York.

The Awards will be an afternoon of recognition and reward for those hedge funds, funds of hedge funds and alternative credit firms that have outperformed their peers over the past 12 months.

CATEGORIES & CRITERIA

ENTRY RULES

All entry forms should be submitted by Friday December 1, 2017. Service providers must provide a description of their service, along with customer feedback, evidence of client or business growth and evidence of specific focus on credit managers.

The judging period for the Awards is October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2017.

The awards will be publicised internationally in the general and hedge fund media. All awards finalists will be honored — and the winners announced at an afternoon ceremony on Thursday, February 8 at The Yale Club, New York. All winners will also be invited to be interviewed by Alternative Credit Intelligence.

JUDGING

JUDGING

The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration.

Judges will take part in a judging conference call, where the winners will be decided, with one expert per category will be asked to summarise the judges comments and provide any additional input as required. Judges have discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about entries and the final winners confidential.

THE JUDGING PANEL

The judges are carefully selected for their wealth of experience and expertise, as well as their absence of conflicts of interest. The judging panel will comprise representatives from Alt Credit Intelligence, leading institutional and private investors and industry experts. Each member of the judging panel will have an equal vote in choosing the winners in each category. Decisions should be unanimous, but a majority will suffice. Judging decisions will be based on performance, qualitative information and structural criteria.

PLEASE NOTE: Judges do not judge any categories that their company has been entered in and are obliged to declare that they have no conflicts of interest prior to judging.
