Citi continues to be recognised as a leading force in the Nordic region

Citi is named Best Investment Bank in Finland and Norway by Euromoney, the preeminent global financial markets magazine, at its annual Awards for Excellence dinner in London. This follows the recent best M&A house to Citi in Sweden (Mergermarket Award).

“I am very proud of behalf of the entire Nordic team. This is yet another testament that we are doing the right things for our clients. It’s an honor particularly during these difficult times. Citi’s commitment to serving clients across the globe is paramount, and we are glad that has been evident to the Euromoney judges”, says Eirik Winter, Nordic Head of Investment Banking and Chairman Nordic Region.

The jury’s motivation for Finland:
“Citi benefits from its status as a rare example of a bank with a global footprint in Helsinki”

The jury’s motivation for Norway:
“The Norwegian franchise at Citi is a perfect example of its exceptional franchise across the Nordic region, which includes on-the-ground presence in Oslo

Citi’s awards on Euromoney 2016
London – Citi was named "Best Investment Bank in the Emerging Markets”, “Best Bank for Transaction Services” and “Best Bank for Financial Institutions”. 

Euromoney said of Citi’s emerging markets franchise, "Citi over the past 12 months continues to impress clients and rival bankers. It maintained its market-leading franchise across products, backed by its large-scale sales and trading operation, balance sheet, and on-the-ground presence. Over the awards period, Citi demonstrated creativity, bespoke solutions, repeat business and long-term relationships across its fixed income, equity and M&A offering. Citi played the leading role in many of the most important transactions across emerging markets.”

Citi also won a number of regional investment banking awards including Central and Eastern Europe’s best investment bank for the fourth consecutive year.

Regarding the Best Bank for Transaction Services award, Euromoney said: “Citi has recognised the need for genuine flexibility and thinking outside the confines of what has been done before. This applies across the seamless experience of its CitiDirectBE platform, to the Payment Flow Manager giving treasurers greater control over their transactions. This commitment has helped the bank to some impressive client wins over the past year.”

For the Best Bank for Financial Institutions, Euromoney said, “The desire to diversify asset exposure has driven outbound Chinese M&A over the last year.  Citi identified the trend early on and reaped the rewards with a number of important transactions, advising both sellers and buyers.  There is no doubt that the breadth of Citi’s product offering is an important part of its global success with FIG clients. Over 90% of its largest clients have a relationship with the bank in all three areas – banking, transaction services and markets.”

The Euromoney Awards for Excellence are recognized as among the most prestigious in the financial services industry.
