About Us

KangaNews Awards methodology
Since their inception at the end of 2007, KangaNews’s annual awards have been the only laurels given to participants in the Australasian debt markets based purely on peer votes. We do not employ an awards committee or ask for reams of supporting documentation for submissions. Instead, we conduct a thorough and intensive polling of debt market users in Australia and New Zealand.

Issuers, investors and intermediaries are invited to vote for the best houses, deals and intermediaries in the year, on a confidential basis. In 2011 more than 200 market participant firms submitted their votes for the winners of the KangaNews awards. Because of the broad input from genuine market participants, KangaNews is confident that its annual awards are the best and fairest recognition of excellence that exists in the Australasian debt markets.

KangaNews Gala Awards Dinner: March 21 2012
Market participants are invited to celebrate the best houses, issuers, deals and personalities in the Australian and New Zealand markets at a Gala Awards Dinner to be held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney on March 21 2012. Tables for the dinner will go on sale soon. To register your interest or to make an advance booking please email Brydie Wright: This email address is being protected from spambots.
