With the economic environment still uncertain and markets often volatile, last year's deals demanded every ounce of tenacity and expertise available at corporates' relationship banks. The Banker's Deals of the Year are testament to those qualities.
In the 12 months since last year's Deals of the Year, the bad news just kept on coming. Venerable names disappeared; others remain but in a different guise. Yet despite the turmoil, the number and quality of entries this year was extremely high. The Banker's judges considered 416 deals from 102 banks worldwide, which made clear the growing strength of regional banks and were proof indeed that good deals can get done in bad markets.
The past 12 months have been turbulent for the banking sector. Despite the consequences of the credit crunch on structured credit models and transaction flows, both international and local banks have once again brought an impressive number of deals to the attention of The Banker’s judges. The global, regional and country winners have been picked from the 447 transactions submitted from 93 countries around the world.
