Using a combination of reader nominations and expert analysis the IFM awards work to ensure there is a fair process that is not influenced by reputation or newsworthiness. After meticulous research and analysis by the internal team, the process is transitioned to an external research agency who provide their inputs. Then, the finalists are chosen by a panel of industry experts drawn from international ratings agencies and some of the world’s leading financial centers. They undergo extensive scrutiny on the basis of innovation, growth, sustainability, and their contribution to society among the key factors before the final Award winners are announced. The IFM Awards exist to recognize and honor individuals and organizations that make a significant difference and add value, and while delivering the highest standards of innovation and performance.
