Africa's best bank for advisory 2018: Chapel Hill Denham

Awards for Excellence 2018

Chapel Hill, Africa’s best bank for advisory, worked on $1.5 billion-worth of deals across DCM, M&A and ECM, including more than $600 million of bonds for Union Bank of Nigeria and the $300 million merger of Lafarge Africa, United Cement of Nigeria and Atlas Cement.
