Awards for Excellence 2012: Best Investment Bank

The bank has made further progress in equity capital markets and M&A, winning many new clients, building on its familiar leadership in flow markets, all while dialling down risk.

Awards for Excellence 2012

Best Investment Bank: Deutsche Bank

Also nominated: Citi and Morgan Stanley

Deutsche Bank’s leadership in global investment banking is built on the foundation of its dominant position across most of the traded financial markets. In foreign exchange, it has been ranked number one for market share in Euromoney’s annual ranking for eight years. It is the top-ranked firm globally in all rates derivatives across the major currencies, according to Euromoney’s survey published in March. Intriguingly, for a bank headquartered in the eurozone, Deutsche is now the top-ranked firm for market share in dollar rates: the goal of long and steady investment by the bank.
