More than 80 high-profile experts including Limited Partners from accross the world elected the best players of private equity.

Firms in each of the 25 categories were first selected by a scientific selection committee (LPs, specialised bankers...) in conjunction with the editorial department of Leaders league.

Over 150 leading firms submitted their application to the jury panels to compete for the Gold Award in their category.

To compete for the Gold Award, each firm handed in an application form to help the jury member in their decision process. Winners were selected for their performance on the long run.

The criteria are based on a qualitative & quantitative oriented methodology.



During the Gala and Award dinner, the names of the laureates were revealed, and all the nominees received a Silver Awards recognising their performances, while the laureates were rewarded for their excellence with Gold Awards.

This Awards ceremony gave delegates the opportunity to meet build relationships with those recognized as the best in their field during the ceremony in a beautiful surrounding.

The entire event will be recounted in a report published by the editorial department of Leaders League.

For the first time in 2013, Rising Stars Awards recognised high potential practices which show remarkable evolution and are catching up with current leaders.
