GlobalCapital is pleased to reveal the winners and nominees of its 2019 Equity Capital Markets Awards.

For the first time in five years since the Awards' relaunch, GlobalCapital’s Equity Capital Markets Awards were not presented at a gala dinner in London. The event was cancelled because of the Covid-19 coronavirus. We intend that the dinner will return next year.

However, GlobalCapital is as proud as ever to recognise the winners and nominees, who deserve praise for their work last year.

As in the past, equity capital markets participants voted on the best deals of the year and other market participants, while GlobalCapital’s editorial team decided the awards for banks.

Below are this year’s winners. For the deal winners this year we embedded a link to some of our coverage of these momentous transactions as they happened throughout last year. For a summary of the awards please follow this link.

Thank you to all of you who took part in voting on our Awards poll and to the banks who took the time to pitch to us this year.

We look forward to seeing you at next year’s dinner.
