The ACQ5 Global Awards 2019 were the first of their kind in the global legal / financial publishing industry upon launching in 2005. This year, ACQ5 focuses on organisations and individuals that deliver services and skills to meet clients’ needs and adapt to market and regulatory conditions. Candidates considered may not always operate on a global scale, but are truly world class in the way they are run and in the services they deliver to clients.

Each year, ACQ5 seek the assistance of their readers (the industry itself) in order to recognise industry leaders, eminent individuals, exemplary teams and distinguished businesses. This year, the total number of nominations peaked at a record high of 97,416. Those nominated “identify the groups that are confronting the issues which face [the readers] at this ongoing complex juncture, and [the] awards will rise above the status of participation certificate and actually be an endorsement of their work.”
