Voting is now open for the 2012 Global PERE Awards

Blackstone, Brookfield, Lone Star and Oaktree are vying for Global Firm of the Year, with dozens of other GPs, LPs and service providers nominated across 38 categories.

Which general partner was a leader in North America in 2012? Who among Europe’s industry personalities had the most impact during the past 12 months? What transaction deserves ‘Deal of the Year’ status in Asia? Those are just some of the questions your voting will answer!

Currently in its seventh year, the Global PERE Awards arguably are the most highly prized accolades connected with the private equity real estate community worldwide. The awards are so highly regarded because they are totally independent – there is no sponsorship and no panel of judges. Our readers alone vote for the people and organisations that mattered most in 2012.

This year’s slate of nominees is particularly strong. To check out nominees in the Global, North America, Europe and Asia categories, follow the link to our dedicated voting page and get voting.

Voting is easy. Simply visit our voting page and fire away. Each category has four nominations for you to consider. Or, if you think there is a strong candidate that has been overlooked, choose the write-in option. As with previous years, you can vote in all, some or even just one category; you just cannot vote for yourself or your own organisation.

So, which nominated individuals and firms deserve honors for 2012? Time for you to decide.
