Nordea was the best investment bank in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden in 2018, according to an evaluation made by Global Finance of the deals that were either announced or completed during last year. This is the first time Nordea is recognized as best investment bank in all four countries at the same time.
The winners were selected based on a series of criteria, such as market share, number and size of the deals, service and advice, efforts to address market conditions and after-market performance of underwritings, New York-based Global Finance said. The magazine’s editors chose the winners with input from industry experts.
“It is truly amazing that we have received the Best Investment Bank award for all our home markets. This demonstrates the strength of the two pillars of our business model: the pan-Nordic product excellence and the deep local relationships”, said Mathias Leijon and Michael Zeier, Global Co-Heads of Corporate and Investment Banking.
The wins show the importance of offering the full investment-banking-product suite in a model that centers on the client, when dealing with sophisticated clients and complex deals, Nordea’s global head of debt & risk solutions Philip Asp concluded.
Global Finance has selected the top investment banks in the world, as well as in different regions, countries and sectors, for 20 years. The magazine targets senior corporate and financial officers and has readers in 189 countries.
