BCS Global Markets has officially moved into the elite group of the most sought-after arrangers for Russian bond issues, according to the Cbonds 4M2021 ranking.
The company made it into the Top 10 following the 1Q2021 report and has now bolstered its position based on 4M2021 data, securing the 10th place (all issues, excluding own placements). The past four months saw 19 placements by BCS Global Markets for 17 issuers. BCS Global Markets is also recognized as Top 10 in terms of the total size of placements excluding own issues, as well as the size of placements by financial institutions. The company is also ranked fourth for ‘high-yield’ bond issues.
“BCS Global Markets has been traditionally strong in Russia’s debt market. We scooped nine prizes at the Cbonds Awards 2020, and in 2021 we are continuing to expand our business, a trend which is confirmed by the latest rankings. We are seeing significant interest to debt financing from our customers and expect to strengthen our positions in DCM by the year’s end,” said Denis Leonov, co-head of DCM at BCS Global Markets.
