Never one to rest on our laurels, we have made some changes to this year’s competition by adding a fifth category - Sustainable Bond of the Year - to identify institutions that demonstrate a sustained commitment to serving the SME sector in its market(s) through social, green, or sustainability bonds. Seeking entries from financial institutions that have implemented a bond program or issued a bond and can share how that has had a positive impact on SMEs.

Also new this year, financiers can now enter in up to three (3) categories, not just two as in all previous years.

In all of the categories, we look forward to hearing from financial intermediaries from across the spectrum and globe, to share what they are doing and what they are learning so that we can learn from one another and expand access to finance for small and medium businesses.
