Bridgepoint has been named European mid-market firm of the Year in the Global Private Equity Awards for 2004. The awards, organised by Private Equity International and PrivateEquityOnline.com, recognise excellence in a variety of fields.
"These awards are always fascinating because there are no shortlists or judging panels: any one who reads our magazine or website can participate and this year we had thousands of votes cast from all parts of the private equity community and from all over the world. GPs, LPs, bankers, lawyers, placement agents - everyone had their say," commented David Hawkins, Publisher of Private Equity International and PrivateEquityOnline.com.
Bridgepoint came out top ahead of runners-up Barclays and Advent to be listed among the 'blue riband players within the global private equity community".
