VTB Capital has been named the "Most Innovative Bank from Central and Eastern Europe 2013" at the annual Investment Banking Awards organised by The Banker magazine. The ceremony took place in London.
The Investment Banking Awards set the standard of quality for the international banking community. The awards are presented by The Banker magazine, which has been one of the UK’s leading financial publications since 1926.
The Banker’s prestigious international award is further acknowledgement of VTB Capital’s expertise and the leading role it has on the Russian investment banking market. This is evidenced further by VTB Capital being ranked first in Dealogic’s Q3 2013 league tables in the debt and equity capital markets, as well as M&A advisory in Russia and the CIS. VTB Capital also took the leading positions in Thomson Reuters’ rankings of M&A consultants worldwide.
Alexei Yakovitsky, Global CEO of VTB Capital, said: "The award presented by The Banker magazine is one of the most prestigious in the international financial market, and for us it is very important that VTB Capital’s success has been recognised and appreciated by the professional community."
Other accolades VTB Capital has received this year include Euromoney Award for Excellence 2013 in the "Best Investment Bank in Russia" category. In February, VTB Capital was also honoured at Global Finance magazine’s World's Best Investment Banks awards, where it won ”Best Investment Bank in Russia" and "Best Investment Bank in Central and Eastern Europe".
