The Global PERE Awards Hall of Fame tracks the biggest winners since 2007. In the 2022 awards, the top three remains unchanged since last year, with mega-manager Blackstone dominating once again. Blackstone won a whopping 11 awards, taking its total from 101 to 112 – a significant lead over second-place Clifford Chance, which gained two awards, hitting 40 wins in total. 

Honorable mentions go to GIC, which took home six wins to hit 20 overall, and Kirkland & Ellis, which added four awards to its tally and now stands at 21. In addition, Starwood Capital reached 37 wins overall after winning three more awards this year. 

Tristan Capital Partners also made its way back into the PERE Awards after failing to win any in 2021. This year, the firm was crowned Firm of the Year in the UK and Firm of the Year in France, bringing its total to nine.
