Judging process

Risk Awards 2019 - judging process

These awards are decided by the editors and journalists of Risk.net and Risk magazine.

The judging process is split into three parts:

  • Submission of pitch documents
  • Off-the-record meetings
  • Due diligence on shortlisted candidates, including client calls

There's no minimum or maximum length for the submissions (pitches can be as short as two pages, or as long as twenty). There's also no set structure or format - it is an opportunity for you to tell us why you deserve to win. Most pitching firms will be asked to set aside time for an off-record meeting, which plays a far bigger part in determining the eventual winners.

We are looking for innovation and creativity from applicants, in how you address the challenges you face in trading and risk management, and in how you address the challenges facing your clients.

Submissions should include case studies and examples of best practice or key deals.
