Middle East's best investment bank 2020: HSBC

Awards for Excellence 2020

But what really stands out is both the pivotal role the bank has played in developing the Gulf’s capital markets, as well as its expertise in M&A and advisory, which will become vital as the region embarks on a period of adjustment in reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic and the slump in oil prices.
