BEST BANK: National Bank of Greece
BEST DEBT HOUSE: Deutsche Bank

After losing out last year to rival Alpha Bank, National Bank of Greece, Greece’s largest bank, is once again Euromoney’s pick for best bank in Greece. NBG is back on track, and the bank last year succeeded in achieving a return on equity of close to 20%, the highest among its domestic peers. The bank also made headlines internationally this year when it trumped Citigroup in the battle to buy Turkey’s Finansbank.

Deutsche Bank led more deals for Greek issuers than any other bank last year. The bank, which also has a leading franchise in the trading of Greek bonds, was behind several of the year’s most innovative deals, including the first ever credit card receivables securitization in Greece, the country’s first ever debt exchange, and the debt financing for the leveraged buyout of TIM Hellas, the country’s largest ever LBO.
