Coming In June 2016 – A Special Issue Dedicated to Innovation


Nominations are due by March 8, 2016.

In June 2016, Global Finance will publish a special issue recognizing the world's most innovative companies and banks in five specialties:

  • Corporate Finance (for corporates only)
  • Transaction Services
  • Trade Finance
  • Foreign Exchange
  • Islamic Finance

To be considered for listing, firms must have created an innovation in one of these areas in the past year. The Corporate Finance listings honor non-financial corporates only, for innovation in their treasury or finance functions; any organization may be nominated for the other four categories. You may nominate your own or another firm under one or more of the following subcategories, as defined by the OECD's Oslo Manual of Innovation:

PRODUCT INNOVATION

A good or service that is new or significantly improved. This includes upgrades in technical specifications, components and materials, software, user friendliness or other functional characteristics.

PROCESS INNOVATION

A new or significantly improved production or delivery method. This includes changes in techniques, equipment and/or software.

MARKETING INNOVATION

A new marketing method involving significant changes in product design or packaging, product placement, product promotion or pricing.

ORGANIZATIONAL INNOVATION

A new or better approach to business practices, workplace organization or external relations.
