Waters Rankings 2015 — All the Winners and Why They Won

At a luncheon held on July 16 at New York's Metropolitan Club, the winners of the 2015 Waters Rankings were revealed.

A mix of new and repeat winners came top this year.

As has become a summer tradition, end-users representing a large swath of the capital markets cast thousands of votes over a six-week period to determine the outcome of the 30 categories making up this year's Waters Rankings. Below is the list of this year's category winners, who received their awards at the Metropolitan Club-hosted Waters Rankings luncheon on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

The August issue of Waters features write-ups on all of the category winners, explaining their strengths in the categories they won. We would like to thank our readers for sharing their expertise in determining this year's winners, as well as everyone who attended the event.
