This year’s nomination season comes at a time of great difficulty for the US commercial real estate and broader global financial markets, with soaring inflation, global geopolitical turmoil and the threat of a near-term recession curtailing investment and lending activity.

We have significantly expanded the awards from last year, more than doubling the number of categories while maintaining a place for large-scale and mid-market lenders. The awards are a collaborative process with our affiliate publications, PERE and Real Estate Capital Europe, both of which have long-established awards.
