Last December, EuroWeek asked the emerging markets teams at the leading houses in the international bond markets for their views on which deals had been the best, or worst, of 2003. First, banks were asked to nominate their favourite deals so that a shortlist could be drawn up. Next, they were asked to name one deal from the shortlist as the best of the year — but not one that they had led.
In addition, banks were asked to nominate the firms that impressed them most as lead managers in 2003. Here are the results.
