International Investment has announced the launch of two new categories as part of its 19th annual International Fund & Product Awards, now open for nominations.
The new categories are Best International Law Firm (Tax) and Best International Young Talent. Commenting on the addition of the awards, International Investment's publisher, Christopher Copper-Ind, said: "We are delighted to be promoting the best that this vibrant global industry has to offer. In launching the award of Best International Law Firm (Tax), we are consciously championing the excellent standards within the tax advisory industry that all too often go unnoticed by the media and the world at large.
He continued: "Similarly, in creating the Best International Young Talent Award, we are acknowledging the extraordinary breadth of youthful talent across the industry, and are looking to applaud the rising stars across the different sectors and jurisdictions."
The Awards are the longest-established in the industry, and this year will culminate with a prestigious ceremony taking place on Thursday 4 October at the magnificent Merchant Taylors Hall in the City of London.
