Equity Awards

  • Years of work building a first-class equity-linked business came to fruition for HSBC in 2021. Amid waves of issuance, the bank topped league tables, hit its highest deal value ever and dominated a resurgent UK market. Pairing consistency and quality with the vision to open new markets, HSBC is GlobalCapital’s Equity-linked Bank of the Year.
  • When it comes to winning streaks in GlobalCapital’s awards, Berenberg has an impressive record having now won Bank of the Year for Small Cap ECM five years running.
  • Jefferies has spent years investing in an equity business built on global talent, first rate structuring and unparalleled distribution capabilities. In a tumultuous year, the firm’s edge over its competitors was clearer than ever. Finishing in pole positions across multiple rankings for the region, Jefferies is the worthy winner of ECM Bank of the Year in the UK and Ireland.
  • Full results revealed: Morgan Stanley, HSBC, JPM and Citi also win top Awards
  • Raising equity can be hard for small and mid-cap corporates in Europe. Too small to attract the bulge bracket banks, too big for local brokers to handle — but for Berenberg an opportunity to expand beyond its 430 year-old roots in Germany.
  • The environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda finally arrived in equity capital markets in 2020 with a flurry of activity across IPOs and convertible bonds.
  • Investment bankers tend to always talk about standing behind their corporate clients in tough times. Last year HSBC stood out for putting those words into action.
  • Equity capital markets advisors had their work cut out for them in 2020. Throughout the year, their services were in high demand due to everything from Covid-related recapitalisations and marquee IPOs for technology-sector stars, to a resurgent equity-linked market, a boom in special purpose acquisition companies, and rising investments in unlisted equity.
  • Last year GlobalCapital was forced to abandon our 2019 Equity Capital Markets Awards dinner because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Little did we know that what seemed like a brief crisis would transform all our lives in the way it has. But despite the huge pressure of the virus and its dramatic impact on stockmarkets, the equity capital markets rose to the challenge in 2020, enabling many companies to raise vital capital to mend broken balance sheets and even to complete IPOs, all without executives having to leaving their home countries — or even their homes. After an extraordinary year, GlobalCapital is pleased to recognise the truly outstanding achievements in ECM.
  • GlobalCapital is pleased to reveal the winners and nominees of its 2020 Equity Capital Markets Awards.
  • GlobalCapital has launched the process to decide the winners of our Equity Capital Markets Awards for 2020. The results will be announced at the end of March.
  • GlobalCapital may not have been able to celebrate its Equity Capital Markets Awards in person with the winners this year but we are no less delighted to be able to reveal who they are and those winners are no less deserving for it. We fully intend that the dinner will return next year but for the meantime, here are some of the highlights from this year’s crop. Our congratulations to all.
