Clive Horwood, editor of Euromoney, said: Picking the outstanding financial institutions in the world over the past 12 months has never been more difficult. It was a period when everybody said the cycle had to come to an end but it never did. In fact, business volumes and profitability rose to new heights. Credit markets remained benign. Equity markets surged. M&A Activity reached unprecedented levels, spurred by the boom in private equity. Global capital flows blossomed as the boundaries between developed and developing markets became ever more blurred. Wealth generation in emerging market countries brought huge opportunities to local and international players alike. The firms that stood out from the crowd were those that exhibited the ability to innovate, react at speed and make best use of the inherent strengths of their organization.
