|BEST BANK: Aval Bank
BEST DEBT HOUSE: UBS
BEST EQUITY HOUSE: Dragon Capital
UBS takes the award for best debt house, having arranged a total of six Eurobonds for the country’s borrowers during the 12-month period. These included the very well received and tightly priced deal for Ukreximbank last September, and the sovereign’s debut 144A transaction in October. Standard Bank also enjoyed an impressive year in the syndicated loan markets, topping mandated lead arranger league tables.
With the Russian IPO boom now a reality, attention is turning to Ukraine’s potential.
