With the help of our highly experienced editorial staff located around the world, we are positioned to gather vital and current information, and to receive important feedback from opinion leaders of worldwide events whom we partner with -- Marcus Evans, Opal Group, and IDC just to name a few.

Our 50,000+ readers have the opportunity to express their preference for a particular company directly online by participating in our online survey. Each survey, along with an accurate evaluation of the application, is made entirely by the editorial staff of LeFonti - Excellence in Global Economy and Sustainability and International Family Office Magazine. A company may also participate by introducing its own candidacy.

The entire awards process, including the submission of votes, nomination and Selection of winners, is free of charge.
Cast your vote today by filling out one of the following surveys:


Our annual surveys are a qualitative and quantitative review of the best firms in global finance and economy with a focus on sustainability, divided by region and services provided. Outstanding performers are then shortlisted and the judging process is subsequently conducted through qualitative and quantitative screening.

LeFonti Awards constantly seeks excellence in all types of companies, whether small or large, national or international, as well as companies operating in niche areas. We value and recognize company contributions both within their communities and around the world.

LeFonti Awards strongly believes that readers should be given the freedom to vote for any company that deserves an award without having to strictly opt for names that have been already been pre-selected, nominated and published for them.

Readers are welcome to suggest any additional categories amongst the list of surveys available if not already included in the pre-determined list.

Judges will then deliberate on a winner using also their remarkable expertise and the documents submitted by entries.

Our winners are chosen by a combination of votes gathered from our readers, our network of respected industry partners and our own rigorous in-house research. We are committed not only to carefully evaluating our shortlisted candidates and winners, but also to give them the opportunity to maximize the benefits from the awards process thanks to the assistance of our judging staff .

Since its creation, LeFonti Awards, has guaranteed independence by not accepting paid sponsorships. LeFonti awards is an event wich only runs with free institutional support. Due to this matter, buying seats at the gala is the only way to contribute in part to the high costs incurred.

For individual awards at a corporate level, guests have the right to book a seat for free at the gala dinner. According to the National and International Regulations, individuals who do not attend will be able, in any case, to compete for the Special Award of the Editorial Staff.
