Finance Dublin's annual Deals of the Year Awards 2021 issue, profiling the 40 winning awards, across 6 broad categories.

The Report shows that the world of finance is changing, and perhaps at an accelerated pace during the pandemic, as the industry met the challenge of a health and human crisis, the first global catastrophe since the great financial crisis of 2007-2008.

It's been a time when, as the deals stories also show, the industry and the world, continues to adjust to the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 itself.

The awards reflect the changing times, such as the rise of green finance, the role of Irish companies in leading edge life sciences work, which the pandemic has reminded us of, the challenges of finance in the Irish economy, notably in housing, and the changing role of finance, as private equity and alternative finance combine in new ways to blend with traditional financing models in banking.

The deals stories reflect the rich diversity of financing industry in Ireland, a new industry that barely existed 35 years ago, with, an international dimension that certainly could not even have been imagined 35 years ago.
