Private Equity Wire USA Awards 2019 - The Winners


The achievements of the best private equity managers, consultants and service providers in North America over the past year have been recognised at the inaugural Private Equity Wire USA Awards.

On 25 September 2019, the winners were presented with their awards in a ceremony at the Intercontinental in New York City.
 
Private Equity Wire partnered with PitchBook to pre-select managers based on their performance over the previous 12 months. The winners were then decided via a rigorous reader-choice online poll carried out over a period of ten weeks. The winners in all categories were those who attracted the most votes from Private Equity Wire's readers.
 
Overall, 2690 readers participated, of which 37 per cent were LPs; 39 per cent were GPs; and 20 per cent were Service Providers.
