VTB Capital named Best Investment Bank for M&A in Russia and the UK

5 October 2015

VTB Capital has once again been awarded the title of "Best Investment Bank”. Finance Monthly magazine (UK) recognised VTB Capital as the "Best Investment Bank in Russia and the UK" for M&A according to the votes of market participants as well as Finance Monthly’s own research.

VTB Capital was also ranked first for M&A activity in Central and Eastern Europe according to the Dealogic, Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters league tables covering 2015 to 30 September. 

In the UK, the announced circa USD5.5bn cash offer for the London listed Polyus Gold is VTB Capital’s third UK transaction to be ranked among the biggest 11 deals announced since 2013. Among VTB Capital’s achievements in M&A in Russia, Finance Monthly noted VTB Capital’s role as the sole financial advisor to China National Chemical Corporation (“ChemChina”), the largest chemical company in China, in relation to a cooperation agreement between ChemChina and Rosneft.

Riccardo Orcel, Deputy CEO of VTB Group and Head of Global Banking at VTB Capital, said: “We are delighted to receive yet another award and high praise for our achievements in such a deep and competitive market as the UK. The vote received from other market participants emphasizes VTB Capital’s success in growing its international franchise. In the last month alone, VTB Capital was an advisor on several landmark M&A transactions for top tier clients ranging from China to Turkey, as well as the UK and Russia. The fact that large international companies increasingly choose VTB Capital as financial advisor for such strategically important transactions reflects the quality of our people, our ideas and our commitment to serving our clients."

Finance Monthly, a global corporate finance publication based in the UK, annually recognises the best participants in the global M&A market through its own analysis and voting. This year's award winners were selected through over 8,000 votes by market participants.

In 2015 VTB Capital was also named Best Investment Bank in Russia by both Euromoney Awards for Excellence and International Finance Magazine (UK).
