Awards for Excellence 2013: Best Equity house

Specialist ECM franchise firms, with Morgan Stanley at the forefront, flourished in the revived markets from mid-2012 onwards.

Awards for Excellence 2013

Best Equity house: Morgan Stanley

Also shortlisted: Goldman Sachs and Citi

As central banks eased credit and liquidity concerns from mid-2012 and the equity capital markets revived, the large universal banks with hefty balance sheets to underwrite primary-market risk slipped a little in the ECM rankings. In less-stressed market conditions, leadership reverted to the traditional ECM franchise firms with strong equity distribution and smart ideas. And although Goldman led the league table for the period under review, Morgan Stanley pips it for the award this year in recognition of a string of important deals for its corporate clients spanning developed and emerging markets, sometimes executed in tough market conditions when other firms hunkered down.
