2018 Winners

Congratulations to the winners of this year's Unquote British Private Equity Awards, held last night in London.

With more than 450 private equity professionals in attendance at The Brewery in London last night, Unquote would like to thank all that took part in our 14th Awards and helped make the night a great celebration of success.

An impressive number of entries made our judging panel's task of selecting the shortlist a particularly challenging one. The judges' input was then considered alongside a vote from the Unquote readership to determine the winners.
