2. Will institutions that do not make a submission be considered?
The Asian Banker may decide, at its own discretion and on a strictly case-by-case basis, to consider transaction institutions that do not make a submission. However, transaction institutions that do not make a submission may have a ranking that is not up to their expectations due to unavoidable difficulties in gathering full and accurate information when a submission has not been made.

4. Is the information submitted made available to the public?
All information you provide will be kept in strictest confidence. A final report will collate the findings and publish generic information that discusses trends and emerging best practices from the programme, but does not discuss any specific submission under any circumstances whatsoever.

5. Commitment to Integrity Statement
The Asian Banker is committed to the highest level of integrity in the conduct of all its awards programmes. At no time, would we conduct ourselves in a manner that can give the industry any reasons to doubt the impartiality of the decision-making process involved. We make a clear distinction between the commercial aspects of running an awards programme which go towards underwriting the costs of the researchers and the time involved, and the neutrality with which our researchers make their decisions. We wish that the industry takes the awards presented by The Asian Banker as representing the most prestigious recognition of their work as well as professional careers.

6. When to submit?
Please complete the questionnaire and email it to transactionawards@theasianbanker.com no later than 26 February 2021.
