Barclays Capital was named Best Global Investment Bank at last night’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2011.
Describing the firm’s success, Euromoney magazine said: “Barclays Capital has achieved an enormous amount. It is now clearly one of the top half dozen investment banks in the world, when you combine both markets and banking.
“It’s the only foreign bank ever to become a top five player in the US, and in many markets there it ranks much higher than that. Its FICC business remains a global leader, and its M&A and equity businesses are showing great momentum.
“In effect, this is a business that has crunched five years of growth into the space of just a couple of years.”
Barclays Capital was also named Best Debt House in North America, Best Flow House in Western Europe, Best Debt House in Qatar, Best Debt House in Russia, Best Debt House in South Africa, and Best Equity House in UK.
Barclays was named Best Bank in Botswana and Best Bank in the UK.
