The British Private Equity Awards do a very good job of recognising the contribution of private equity to the growth of British business, and this year’s event will take place on Tuesday, 3rd October, at The Brewery in London.

It is organised by the Unquote media platform, and they have striven to ensure that the awards are judged as fairly as possible with a stringent four stage process. The panels are made up of seasoned professionals with years of experience in the sector, and there is also input from the Unquote readership. 

As many as 350 attendees are expected at the event, which takes the format of a black tie gala dinner. Organisations are able to enter as many categories as they wish, and this year, awards to be handed out will include: Mid Market Buyout House of the Year, Large Buyout House of the Year, Small Buyout House of the Year, Venture & Growth Capital House of the Year, VCT House of the Year, Mid Market Exit of the Year, Small Exit of the Year, Venture & Growth Capital Exit of the Year and Fundraising of the Year.

The attraction of the British Private Equity Awards is centred around the opportunity for organisations to benchmark themselves in what can be one of the most competitive areas of the financial sector. Of course, it is always gratifying to be recognised for your achievements and honoured in front of your peers – and the winners of the awards will enjoy the positive impact on their profile.

After the deadline to submit entries this month, the judges can be relied upon to publish their shortlists for each category shortly afterwards. Readers of the Unquote platform will be able to have their say between the 5th and 12th September, when the awards poll will take place.

The event promises to attract high profile figures from the world of UK private equity investment. 

Speaking ahead of the event, Monaco’s Gérard Cohen, said: “The British Private Equity Awards are eagerly anticipated each year, not only for the thoroughly enjoyable evening itself, but for the chance to recognise the best deals and the organisations behind them. The awards are widely respected due to the quality of the judging panels, as well as the entries themselves, and the attendee list is usually representative of some of the leading lights in our industry.”
