HSBC’s power in debt financing, allied with the strength of its balance sheet, is well known, but Stephen Williams’ capital financing team was no one-trick pony during our review period. It handled equity or equity-linked deals in Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and India as well as many of the deals that mattered most in Greater China.
