Nordea is the top Corporate and Investment Bank in the Nordics in 2018, according to data from Dealogics (pdf, 22 KB). For the first time Nordea grabs the top spot in the areas of Equity Capital Markets, Mergers & Acquisitions and Corporate Bonds issuance at the same time.
- The strength of our total offering, including our ability to provide large financing commitments, has been instrumental in securing and executing a number of large transactions, says Mathias Leijon, Global Co-Head of Corporate and Investment Banking.
Nordea’s integrated business model enables us to provide our clients with a full service offering for M&A and corporate financing, said Michael Zeier, Global Co-Head of Corporate and Investment Banking. Examples of successes when working across the full value chain are Nordea’s role as lead advisor and financing provider when TDC agreed to be acquired by a group of pension funds and the merger of Tele2 and ComHem.
Nordea is committed to strengthening its position as the leading financing provider and financial adviser to Nordic corporates further in 2019, Michael Zeier said, adding that the intention is to grow our share of wallet, ie the share of our clients’ business that we win, rather than grow the number of clients that we work with.
Nordea arranged over 340 individual bond transactions in 2018 for corporate and institutional issuers spread over 180 different issuer clients. We have a leading market presence in all four Nordic countries and in all relevant market segments within high yield and investment grade issuances across all local currencies and euros. The wide range of issuers reflects the strength of our Corporate franchise, said Philip Asp, Head of Debt and Risk Solutions.
London-based Dealogic offers content and analytics software to the financial industry. The company says its platform may be used to identify opportunities, execute deals and manage risk.
