Best high grade bond house


This is the first year that Euromoney has not singled out one bank as the recipient of best global debt house, an accolade that Citigroup has received for the past few years.

Stripping away its high yield and enormous loan business, it is perhaps even more impressive that Citigroup comes out top in our new category of best global high-grade debt house. In the US, it has seen the most high-grade business of the past 12 months by a wide margin and also has the top market share for European high-grade debt, narrowly beating its nearest rival, Deutsche Bank.

“Some competitors have tried to categorize us simply as a big loan house which drives our capital markets business but it’s not the case,” says Charlie Berman, global head of public sector fixed-income origination at the bank. “The reality is we have a very strong platform across all high-grade products, currencies and markets. We aim to do well whatever the prevailing market conditions; it isn’t just about going for whatever transient product is popular at the time.
