The AVCAL Awards recognise outstanding performance across a range of categories. A panel of industry experts assess nominations from AVCAL members in two award types:
Portfolio Company Awards
The portfolio company awards recognise vision, achievement, creativity and entrepreneurship of AVCAL fund manager members, who are collectively responsible for managing $29 billion of capital. The categories for these awards are for investments in early stage, expansion stage, small buyout, medium buyout and large buyout. Judging focus will be on value-add by the fund manager, financial performance, returns to investors, innovation, industry competitiveness, and overall contribution to the economy.
Excellence in Investor Reporting Award
AVCAL’s Excellence in Investor Reporting award was created to promote a continual lifting of reporting standards and benchmarks by which the industry is measured. Since the inception of the award four years ago, this standard has been successfully raised to a much higher level. As a result, our LP judging panel have determined to focus on another area of LP engagement for GPs and consideration is being given to another LP-judged award to replace it. Information will follow in due course.
