We’re delighted to have been awarded ‘Most Impressive FIG House in Sterling’ for 2020, in the GlobalCapital Bond Market Awards 2020.

The awards are selected based on a poll of market participants, and recognise achievements across all the main segments of the international bond markets.  ‘Most Impressive FIG House in Sterling’ was awarded on the basis of achieving dominant overall market share in sterling for financial institutions, as well as for our role in more complex products that require closer engagement - such as acquisition finance, Libor transition and innovative liability management exercises.

James Marriott, Global Head of FI and SSA DCM and Advisory at NatWest Markets commented on winning the award,

Thank you GlobalCapital and to our clients for voting for us. We’ve been dealer manager and book runner on numerous  innovative and ground-breaking deals this year, and it’s fantastic to see these achievements being recognised in the market and most importantly by our clients. However this is a team success, and we couldn’t have made it happen without the strong determination and strive by our teams throughout a particularly difficult year for our clients.’  

Chris Agathangelou, Head of Flow Credit Syndicate added,

‘As an institution we have had an extremely strong year with various types of transactions executed amongst some significant market volatility. The depth of demand achieved signals the resilience of the sterling market and the flexibility it can offer our clients. We continue to demonstrate our strength in partnering with other issuers to optimise funding and liquidity available to the market, and being recognised and awarded for this is truly an honour.’
