2010 Awards for excellence: Best Global debt house

The US bank has helped issuers raise debt through good markets and bad, driven by its integrated corporate financing franchise.

Awards for Excellence 2010
Best Global debt house: JPMorgan
Also nominated: Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank and HSBC

For the debt capital markets, the past year was a story of feast then famine. An intoxicating rally in fixed-income assets fuelled by cheap, government funded liquidity led to record issuance, only to be followed, in the latter part of the year, by a sovereign debt crisis that brought issuance in Europe to a halt.

Success in debt capital markets therefore lay in an ability to mobilize borrowers and investors to take advantage of the reopening of new-issue markets, while also being able to offer borrowers a range of markets to issue in. JPMorgan showed its mettle as a truly global debt house not only in grabbing the largest slice of the overall market but also by playing a part in diversifying borrowers’ funding sources, such as the yankee bond market. It was also a big participant in helping revive parts of the European securitization market.

"Our DCM platform is a globally integrated cross-border business," says Therese Esperdy, JPMorgan’s global head of debt capital markets.
