Welcome to Agri Investor’s inaugural Annual Awards. For the first time, we take this opportunity to recognize the managers, investors and innovators who pushed the boundaries and had an excellent year in their respective fields across the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
This year, our awards span 31 categories for which we received many submissions that were carefully reviewed to compile our shortlists. Throughout January and February, hundreds of readers and industry stakeholders cast their votes as our call to help shine a light on the sector’s standard bearers was answered.
The results of this months-long process, which began in November when we launched our awards and issued our call for submissions, you will find below. Some categories were tightly contested and came down to a matter of several votes – such as Equity Fundraising of the Year, Global – while others were won by a landslide.
One of the standout winners in our inaugural awards is PSP Investments, which took home an impressive five awards, including Institutional Investor of the Year in the Global and Americas categories.
Also worthy of mentions are Australian asset manager Roc Partners, which won three awards including Fund Manager of the Year for the Global and Asia-Pacific categories, and AXA IM Alts, which won the Timberland Deal of the Year award in the Global, Europe and Asia-Pacific categories.
There are a further 19 winners for you to discover below.
