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

11 August 2016


VTB Capital was recognized as Investment Banking Firm of the Year in the UK by Finance Monthly for M&A in 2016 according to the votes of market participants as well as Finance Monthly’s own research.

This successful defence of a title first won by VTB Capital in 2015 comes after a strong run of advising on deals with a UK angle - including 3 of the biggest take private deals seen on the London Stock Exchange. Finance Monthly particularly noted VTB Capital acting as sole financial advisor and provider of financing in the take-private of Polyus Gold, one of the largest M&A deals in the UK market in the last three years.

In addition to the UK, VTB Capital has executed M&A transactions for clients across the world including advising leading corporates from China, India, Germany, Portugal, Turkey, Nigeria and the United States as well as dominating its domestic Russian M&A market.

Riccardo Orcel, Deputy CEO of VTB Group and Head of Global Banking at VTB Capital, said: “We are proud to receive this award for the second consecutive year and consider this another endorsement of our professionalism and our advisory capabilities. This recognition highlights further our wide-ranging business expertise and testifies to our continued focus on being a leading M&A house internationally as well as in Russia and the wider CEE region.”

Finance Monthly, a global corporate finance publication based in the UK, annually recognizes 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.
