About the Bonds & Loans Latin America & Caribbean AWARDS 2021

Since 2015, the Bonds & Loans Awards has been recognising the most innovative and ground-breaking deals from Sovereign, Corporate and Financial Institution issuers and borrowers. This year, I am delighted to announce that for the first time we will be recognising the outstanding achievements of Investment Banks' Deal Teams, Funding Teams, Investment Managers, and Legal Advisers.

The exhaustive selection process involves close examination of deal size, tenor, structure, and distribution; analysis and background of the borrower and their accessibility to financing; with extra credit for those deals demonstrating high quality execution, accessing new pools of liquidity, innovative structuring, and opening-up new markets.

Bringing together the industry’s most high-profile figures, the Bonds & Loans Latin America & Caribbean Awards ceremony is an opportunity to raise the profile of the financial markets with the international investment community, and to inspire future issuance by Latin American & Caribbean companies.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2021 WINNERS!

Following a rigorous selection process, we are delighted to announce the Bonds & Loans Latin America & Caribbean AWARDS 2021 winners!
