Deals of the Year 2009

May 5, 2009

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.
