BNP Paribas is western Europe’s best bank for financing. It ranks first in the Dealogic bookrunner rankings in debt capital markets, ahead of Deutsche Bank in second place, JPMorgan in third, Barclays in fourth and HSBC fifth.

It also heads the rankings for environmental, social and governance-focused DCM. It tops the loan arranger rankings, ahead of its domestic rival Crédit Agricole and Deutsche. And it is also a leader in leveraged finance.
