GlobalCapital names NatWest Markets Best Agent of International US Private Placements
GlobalCapital has built its reputation over three decades by providing those in the international capital markets with quality analysis and journalism spanning deals and industry trends across a range of market sectors, including US Private Placements, Schuldscheine, Euro Private Placements, Corporate Medium Term Notes, Direct Lending, and Unrated Bonds.
This year, GlobalCapital introduced the Private Debt Awards at their annual Syndicated Loan and Leveraged Finance Awards on 12 February. The Private Debt Awards recognises issuers, investment banks, investors and law firms for their accomplishments and impressive service to the market. Each recipient of an award is decided based on extensive data analysis, feedback from market participants and a breakdown of their performance in 2019.
We're delighted to have been named "Best agent of international US private placements", which further endorses the strength of our financing business and overall capabilities. This accolade follows our 2019 ranking as "#1 Traditional Private Placement Agent for European Issuers" by Dealogic.
"This award is a great endorsement of the global distribution capabilities that NatWest Markets brings to its core corporate client base. Our private placement franchise has a long history of leading the market, and it is particularly pleasing to see that recognised at GlobalCapital's inaugural Private Debt Awards," commented Robert Busby, Head of Private Placements.
The award win also emphasizes the close partnership across NatWest Group. Andrew Blincoe, Head of Structured Finance, NatWest, said: "Our ability to support our customers in finding long term capital in the private markets has consistently been one of our areas of strength across the franchise and I'm delighted to see our private placement capability recognised in these awards. Many congratulations to the teams from across the group who have helped contribute."
Additionally, NatWest Markets was involved in the success of two loans that won awards at this year's ceremony: “Deal of the year” and “Infrastructure finance loan of the year”. Click here for the full list of award winners.
