FT and IFC Sustainable Banking Awards for Microfinance Deadline Extended

The 2008 Financial Times Sustainable Banking Awards has extended their submission deadline to March 10. The awards will be presented in London on June 3, 2008 following the 2008 FT/IFC Sustainable Banking Conference.

Previously, the FT and IFC Sustainable Banking Awards had focused solely on banking institutions. This year, in hopes of recognizing non-bank MFIs, two new categories have been added: Award for Banking at the Bottom of the Pyramid, and Sustainable Investor of the Year. Submissions for these categories are open to private equity firms, asset management companies, and other non-banking institutions.

Three bank-specific categories will also be included in the 2008 awards ceremony: Sustainable Bank of the Year, Emerging Markets Sustainable Bank of the Year and Sustainable Deal of the Year.
