Emerging Markets Best debt house: Deutsche Bank

The bank has gone from rank outsider to top underwriter in less than five years.

In 2002, Deutsche Bank was a second-tier player in emerging markets debt. It was ranked outside the top five bond underwriters in the league tables and was barely considered as a bank that could execute groundbreaking transactions. Today, the story could not be more different.

League tables are not the most important criteria for these awards, innovation is. But in the 12 months from May 2005, Deutsche achieved a feat that is rare in the emerging markets – according to Dealogic it ranked number one for all international bonds for each emerging region: Asia-Pacific ex-Japan; EEMEA and Latin America. In that time, the German institution also underwrote more emerging markets bonds than any other bank – 81.
