Standard Bank Group, Africa’s leading lender by assets, has again been recognised at the annual EMEA Finance Achievement Awards, scooping 21 accolades across the capital markets and project finance categories.
This is the eighth consecutive year that Standard Bank has received multiple awards from EMEA Finance, which continues to recognise the group’s leading position in the African capital markets. EMEA Finance is a leading bi-monthly global industry publication that reports on the major financial events initiated and influenced by the international financial industry active in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (the EMEA region).
David Munro, Chief Executive, Corporate and Investment Banking at Standard Bank said: "We are delighted to receive these accolades from EMEA Finance, which recognise that we are deeply invested in Africa’s growth, partnering with our clients on their business strategies. These awards are a testament to our expertise in Africa and Standard Bank’s commitment to providing solutions to meet the daily needs of our clients.”
Standard Bank’s achievements for this year’s awards include:
Equity capital markets winners
Private equity winners
Debt capital markets winners
Project Finance Awards
Among the awards won was that of Best IPO in Africa for the Seplat listing which raised $500 million in London and Lagos. The acquisition of one of Australia’s leading retailers David Jones, by Woolworths, also won best cross-border M&A deal for Standard Bank.
Mr Munro said the awards validated Standard Bank’s Africa focused strategy, with a particular emphasis on natural resources and infrastructure. “The value that we bring to our clients arises from our extensive presence and experience in sub-Saharan Africa, our people who are passionate about Africa, our connectivity to select emerging markets outside of Africa and our ability to access capital from developed economies in Europe and North America.”
Standard Bank has built strong in-country advisory capabilities in a number of key global markets, including South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Mozambique, China and London, delivering a full range of corporate and investment banking services to clients across various emerging markets.Back to all news
