How do I enter and what will the entry form look like?

To enter, firms need to fill in the entry form on this site and submit it via the website portal. Entry forms are specific to each category and can be found by clicking on the category you wish to enter in the list contained in the ‘categories’ tab.

Details of what to include in entries can be found on the individual entry forms. Most categories require firms to provide the following:

a) Details of major achievements in the past 12 months and explanation of why these achievements matter. For example, how did this work help a client/solve an internal problem/address a wider market issue/improve best practice in risk management and trading?

b) Details of challenges overcome and how this was done.

c) In what ways did this company, team or deal stand out against the competition during the last year?

d) How has this company, team or deal contributed to the development of best practice in risk management and/or trading in the past 12 months?

e) It is always useful to provide figures where possible that show growth and improvement – eg customer or revenue growth, or scale and size of deals etc.

Who will judge the awards?

Judging is done by our esteemed Risk.net editorial team. Judging decisions are explained in articles on Risk.net.
