Welcome to the 2015 Sector Awards
With the recent economic downturn proving that equity deal volumes are particularly susceptible to negative trends in the wider economic community, firms – particularly buying firms – are seeking to decrease the risks and put themselves at the head of the pack through increased sector knowledge and focus.
It goes without saying that there are many sizeable benefits to be had from taking such an approach. For example, in deal generation, this in-depth knowledge marks out a firm as a serious contender, attracting key players within the industry and upping the quality of deal flow. Not only that, but when it comes to due diligence, it increases a firm's ability to identify the right deals, and following an acquisition, it allows a firm to quickly set the right strategy, build value immediately and attract the right talent.
In short, almost every element of a business’s success, from targeting the right market to laying the foundations for an effective exit strategy, is dependent on maximum sector focus and knowledge, and these awards are intended to congratulate and publicise both established and up-and-coming firms from across a vast range of industries who share this commitment to expertise.
We want to honour the businesses and individuals at the top of their game in their sector, and get an inside look at how they not only deliver but exceed expectations for their clients. Spanning a diverse range of sectors, and covering all four corners of the globe, these awards put the spotlight on some outstanding groups and individuals who have truly excelled over the past 12 months.
Honouring these esteemed exemplars is the product of a rigorous selection process from our in-house award specialists. This dedicated team left no stone unturned and explored all avenues necessary to ensure that the winners were selected based on their proven performance over the past 12 months, meaning all award winners were chosen purely on merit and can take pride in the knowledge that they have been selected as a leading light in their industry.
