EM Bond Awards 2021 – the winners

GC Bond Awards 2021 575x375

GlobalCapital is pleased to uncover the winners of this year’s Emerging Market Bond Awards, which celebrate the top issuers, arrangers, investors and service providers in the capital markets.

This year’s Awards reflect performance in the nine months between July 2020 and March 2021, which have been an exceptionally active period for those in the market.

Sovereigns and companies alike stormed into markets, with record-breaking levels of debt being raised across emerging markets, as issuers sought to defend themselves against the impacts of the pandemic.

Some went above and beyond, entering relatively untapped markets for the first time, with interest in ESG-linked financing growing despite the troubling times.

Banks were on hand to support their clients, with some bankers in particular impressing market participants.

The winners of the GlobalCapital Bond Awards are determined by a poll.

The issuers, bankers and institutions that have most impressed market participants have been selected in their respective categories.

As the impacts of the pandemic continue to preclude us from meeting in person, this year we announced our results in a virtual ceremony, which is available to view here:
