VTB Capital has been named “Best Investment Bank in Russia” by Global Finance magazine in their annual “World's Best Investment Banks” awards. This is the third year running that VTB Capital has won the award.
VTB Capital was also named “Best Debt Bank in Central and Eastern Europe” and “Best M&A Bank in Central and Eastern Europe”, bringing its total number of awards to three.
The winners were selected by the industry experts.
