Awards for Excellence 2010
|Best Emerging markets debt house: HSBC|
|Also nominated: Citi, Credit Suisse and JPMorgan|
In the 12 months from April 2008, HSBC was ranked only 10th in the league tables for international and local-currency bond deals by borrowers in emerging Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EEMEA). In the 12 months from April 2009, HSBC was ranked first. It’s this drive to be number one that stands out most about the bank’s emerging market debt business.
In the 12 months under review, HSBC lead managed more emerging market bond deals (328) with a greater volume ($40 billion equivalent) than any other bank. It lead managed transactions in 21 currencies, more than any other bank. HSBC is the only bank to rank top five across all three regions – Asia, Latin America and EEMEA – for local-currency and international issuance combined, according to Dealogic. It is the only bank to rank top three for international issuance across all three regions.
Even more than the league table rankings, the reason why HSBC wins the award in an extremely competitive field is the spread of its business and the quality of its deals.
