Congratulations to our Financial Institution Debt Capital Markets team (FI DCM) who won the ‘Coming of Force in FIG Bonds’ award at the 2019 Global Capital Bond Awards Wednesday night.
This award was given based upon a poll of market participants and recognises the strong growth of our FI DCM business over the past twelve months.
James Marriott, Head of FI DCM said, “We’re delighted to receive such positive feedback on our FI DCM business. By share of market volume, NatWest Markets has been the fastest growing FI DCM business in EUR and GBP combined over the past two years*. We’ve also been central to the development of a number of new markets including Restricted Tier 1 and SONIA referenced covered bonds as well as breaking new ground with innovative liability management in bank capital. It’s great to receive this sort of recognition for our work over the past twelve months. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.”
