According to the key international rankings, VTB Capital has once again secured leading spots across the debt capital markets.
According to Dealogic data, the investment bank is the leader among Russia International DCM bookrunners, securing 31.12% market share with 14 deals worth $4.5bn.
VTB Capital also took top spot in the Eastern Europe Bonds Bookrunner category, according to Bloomberg rankings. The investment bank’s market share amounted to 11.5% with VTB Capital executing 42 transactions worth $5.8bn over the first half of the year.
Andrey Solovyev, Global Head of DCM at VTB Capital, said: “Since the beginning of 2019, VTB Capital participated in a number of landmark transactions across debt capital markets, introducing debut issuers to the market, as well as executing transactions for well-known companies. Notably, VTB Capital once again acted as a bookrunner on the placement of Eurobonds for the Ministry of Finance of Russian Federation, successfully placed the first “green” Eurobond in Russia for Russian Railways, and managed to attract a new pool of investors into DCM-transactions. I am confident that in the future our team’s professionalism and commitment to delivering top results will allow VTB Capital to remain the strongest player in the Russian DCM space.”
