  • GlobalCapital is seeking comment from the market on an expanded number award categories
  • 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.
  • GlobalCapital has closed the nominations stage of it annual European securitization awards — shortlists and pitched awards next
  • Across several areas of the interest rate derivatives business, Nomura distinguished itself from the competition in the past year, not only stepping in to provide clients with crucial liquidity, but also supporting them with a valuable mix of timely and authoritative advice and market-leading structuring and execution capabilities.
  • According to technology consultant Celent, conventional rules-based paradigms of approaching risk and compliance obligations have given way to risk-based approaches where greater supervision intensity is placed on high risk or systemically important financial institutions, appropriate conduct, and emergent systemic risks.

  • GlobalCapital is delighted to announce that the Covered Bond Awards 2021 survey will open for voting from Thursday. Congratulations to all those who made it to the shortlists.
  • The rapid economic recovery from the pandemic is causing yields to tighten sharply in the securitization market, pushing investors to explore more esoteric ABS sectors and even private credit. Jennifer Kang reports.
  • The risk transfer market has been growing for years, with new jurisdictions, new collateral types, and more issuers waking up to the potential of the tool. But while investors welcomed debut deals from Canada, Japan, and Mexico, there was always one country which was the biggest prize of all. Last year, finally, the US stirred for real, with a deal between JP Morgan and PGGM hopefully firing the starting gun on a major market expansion. Owen Sanderson reports.
  • As part of GlobalCapital’s awards survey, we asked securitization participants what they wanted from their banks. The results emphasized the importance of market knowledge, more than anything else. Other important qualities sought after included strength of the team and their ability to deal in difficult market conditions, regardless of sector. League table positions mattered less. We also asked you what your outlook was for the second half of 2021. Most expect ABS, RMBS and CMBS spreads to remain stable, but there’s also a sizable number of folks who believe spreads may either tighten or widen slightly. The only exception was expectation for CLO spreads, which very few expect will widen. A big thank you to those who participated in the survey. We’d welcome any suggestions on how we can improve next year!
  • US CLO deals are flooding into the market at a record pace, stretching bankers, lawyers and rating agencies to the limit and challenging the capacity of investors to absorb the heavy volume. There are no signs of slowing down but the oversupply of deals, alongside refinancings and resets, might eventually weigh on spreads, increase manager tiers and cause indigestion.
  • If there was ever a year when the confidence and insight of a first-rate accounting firm was particularly needed, it was 2020. Facing stiff competition from its peers, Deloitte’s depth and breadth of experience and expertise in structured finance was called on and recognised by the market as Accounting Firm of the Year across multiple sectors.
  • Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) has always had a culture of intellectual curiosity. Since its foundation in 2011, the search for new challenges and frontiers has led the firm to all corners of securitization. From areas as disparate as single-family rental and commercial real estate NPLs to marketplace lending and solar. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the firm is active across a wide array of structured finance areas, including ABS consumer lending, CMBS, MBS, and CLOs, as well as esoterics such as aviation, and whole business securitizations.

Broadly Syndicated CLO Manager of the Year — GoldenTree Asset Management

Many CLO managers went into 2020 aggressively positioned, with a high percentage of portfolio assets rated triple-C and on the cusp. When the pandemic hit, a wave of downgrades drove these same managers into bouts of forced selling and severely limited purchases of new assets. But not GoldenTree Asset Management.
