Asia's best bank for financing 2018: Morgan Stanley

Awards for Excellence 2018

Top of the international ECM tables in Asia for the third consecutive year, the bank appeared to be everywhere, with its excellence in Japan through its joint venture with MUFG particularly notable. The bank was on five of the 10 biggest ECM transactions during the review period, including the $9.8 billion block trade in Tencent and the $2.7 billion selldown in Woodside Petroleum by Shell.
