Central America and Caribbean’s best investment bank 2022: Citi

The two most active investment banks in the Caribbean region are Citi and JPMorgan. While it would seem natural to consider them competitors – and of course they are – it is striking how many deals there are in which they team up.

It is also very close in terms of league table positions. Citi beats JPMorgan in debt capital markets, largely due to the bank switching partners to BofA for its $1.85 billion bond for Aeropuerto Internacional de Tocumen.
