Awards for excellence - JPMorgan
The world’s best debt house
Last month, Euromoney caused something of a stir with a very simple proposition: the best way to establish which firm is the most powerful arranger of debt for any given region or group of borrowers is to combine the traditional bond, loan and MTN league tables.
That's music to the ears of JPMorgan, which sits atop the overall global league table of debt arrangers. It may be that, as much by luck as by design, the merger of Chase and JPMorgan, by combining Chase's all-powerful loan franchise and Morgan's more than respectable bond businesses - it's a long-established leader in emerging market bonds, asset backeds and the new European credit market and a growing force in US high grade bonds - has created a powerful new force in the debt markets.
"What we've got in our new company is the right model for the origination of loans and bonds," says Bruce Carnegie-Brown, co-head of JPMorgan's European and Asian debt capital markets.
