On December 9, the anniversary 20th edition of the Russian Bond Congress in St. Petersburg saw BCS Global Markets (BCS GM) winning Cbonds Awards for a sixth consecutive year.
BCS GM was voted to have the best teams in four categories for their 2022 performance:
Best Primary Bond Placement by a gold mining company (as Arranger of PJSC Polyus’s PBО-02 series issue);
Best Primary Bond Placement by a pharmaceutical company (as Arranger of Binnopharm Group’s 001R-02 series issue);
Best Primary Bond Placement in the food industry (as Arranger of Cherkizovo Group’s BО-001R-05 series issue);
Best Primary Bond Placement by an international financial corporation (as Arranger of the Eurasian Development Bank’s 003R-003 series issue);
“2022 was understandably an unprecedented year for the Russian economy. Nevertheless, this year we successfully placed 30 bond issues with an aggregate face value of over 300 billion roubles. Our outlook for 2023 is optimistic, projecting further progress in the Russian bond market, including through renminbi-denominated bond issues,” said Denis Leonov, Head of DCM at BCS GM.
Cbonds Awards is an annual prize to the best players in the Russian debt capital market based on the votes by the professional community. Voting is fully transparent and has been held annually since 2006.
