Deals of the Year 2014: Asia Pacific winners

Skip to:

Trade Finance is pleased to announce the winners of the Deals of the Year awards for 2014 for the Asia Pacific region. Winners for the rest of the world will be announced in the next two weeks and published in the March edition of Trade Finance.

Using a combination of data analytics and an expert panel of judges, Trade Finance has whittled down the hundreds of entries by assessing innovation, complexity, size, country risk, contribution to local economy and other factors. We congratulate the winners for demonstrating ingenuity and determination in the past year’s often difficult market environments.

The full list of winning deals is below, but if you want to find out more about these deals, we will be telling their stories in the next issue of Trade Finance. (Subscribe here.)

To celebrate the winners, Trade Finance is hosting an awards dinner in Singapore on 4 February at our Global Export Conference: Asia event.

If you would like to book a table either to cheer on your colleagues or pick up an award, please contact George Reeves, Alex Chiu or Jason Coles for more details.
