GlobalCapital is delighted to present the winners for this year's Sovereign, Supranational and Agency bond awards.

This year's Awards cover the period from July 2020 to March 2021. During those nine months, borrowers in the SSA market have faced a bewildering variety of new threats and challenges, all while fulfilling some of the largest funding requirements in history.

Borrowers have needed nerve and foresight to face down these challenges, as well as advice and support from their bankers to help them navigate the rapidly shifting landscape.

This year we announced our results in a virtual ceremony, available to view here
