Awards for Excellence 2011: Best Global equity house

The firm has done large IPOs, follow-ons and accelerated bookbuilds in difficult markets for demanding issuers.

Awards for Excellence 2011

Best Global equity house: Morgan Stanley

Also nominated: Goldman Sachs and BAML

They helped rebuild confidence among investors, the private sector and public officials. We led many of these deals due to our global capital markets expertise, as well as the strength of our institutional and retail distribution."

The firm’s traditional ECM strengths lie in IPOs and equity-linked and both capabilities were much in demand by issuers in the developed markets and the growth markets of Asia and Latin America.

Morgan Stanley served as global coordinator and sole stabilization agent on the largest equity offering ever, a $70 billion follow-on for Petrobras.
