How we select the best

For this Guide, we approach business practitioners, clients and industry experts across the world. We invite them to nominate individuals to be recognised as leading professionals in banking, capital markets, corporate governance, investment funds, Islamic finance, M&A, project finance, private equity, restructuring and insolvency and structured finance and securitisation fields. We ask for reasoning for all nominations and seek additional background information as to why an individual should be included in the list. This includes expertise, technical knowledge, reputation, innovation and contribution to the banking, finance and transactional practice development.

For the 10th edition, we have surveyed almost 10,000 practitioners and recognised 5,095 leaders who appear in the final Guide.
