Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2002: North America


Awards for Excellence 2002

Best bank: Not awarded
Best equities house: Not awarded
Best debt house: Not awarded
Best M&A house: Merrill Lynch
Best at risk management and treasury: JP Morgan
Best at custody: State Street
Best at cash management and payments: Citigroup

There are no awards for best bank, equities house or debt house this year.

No US commercial bank has a meaningful presence in Canada, nor do US investment banks make much effort to win domestic Canadian business. Merrill Lynch in M&A is the exception but outside of M&A it has not been much of a player in the past 18 months.
