BEST BANK: Allied Irish Banks
BEST DEBT HOUSE: Deutsche Bank
BEST EQUITY HOUSE: Davy Stockbrokers
BEST M&A HOUSE: Goldman Sachs

Allied Irish Banks is Euromoney’s choice for the best bank in Ireland for a second year in a row. The bank is simply just that bit better than its closest rival, Bank of Ireland, by almost any measure, whether net asset margin, return on equity, or return on assets.

Deutsche Bank, which beat Barclays Capital to the top of the debt league table last year, has a very strong franchise in Ireland. The breadth of its client base and the wide range of products that it brought to market give it a strong claim for the title of best debt house in Ireland.

When it comes to equities, no international or domestic rival can match the entrenched position of local superstar Davy Stockbrokers. Although Davy missed out on the largest deal of the year, a $504 million follow-on for Eircom, which was sole-led by Morgan Stanley, Davy’s sole-led €416 million placement for Anglo Irish shows that it is right up there with the big boys.
