FIG Bond Awards 2021 — the winners

GC Bond Awards 2021 575x375

GlobalCapital is delighted to reveal this year’s winners of its Financial Institution Bond Awards, which celebrate the top issuers, arrangers, bankers and service providers in the capital markets.

The Awards reflect performance in the nine months between July 2020 and March 2021 — an exceptionally busy time for market participants.  

Banks were very active in issuing bonds across all layers of the capital structure in this period, despite major uncertainty over how the pandemic would impact their balance sheets.  

Deal arrangers have had to help borrowers navigate these challenging circumstances, which have been shaped not only by Covid lockdowns but also by rapid changes in the economic cycle.  

The winners of the GlobalCapital Bond Awards are determined by a poll. They are designed to reflect the market’s opinion of who has performed most strongly in different product categories and currencies, as well as who has innovated or overcome challenges.

This year we announced our results in a virtual ceremony, available to viewhere.

Selected winners include HSBC, ING, TD Securities, Morgan Stanley and Moody’s Investors Service

Please join us in congratulating all the winners, which are listed below:
