Sberbank CIB1 took first place in two categories at Cbonds Awards 2016: “Best Investment Bank for Working with Non-oil Sector Companies” and “Best Russian Investment Bank on the Eurobonds Market”. In addition to this, Sberbank CIB was recognised in two other categories, taking second place for work with fuel and energy companies and third place for work with financial institutions.
Also, according to market participants, the “Comeback of the Year” was the Moscow Region’s 35010 bond issue, which was co-organised by Sberbank CIB. The bonds generated extensive demand from all categories of market investors and opened a new page in the history of the issuer’s work on the local fixed income market.
The awards were presented during the 14th Russian Bonds Congress in St. Petersburg, an event organised by Cbonds Congress. This year Sberbank CIB was a general partner of the congress. Winners and runners-up are determined by a survey held on the Cbonds website throughout the month prior to the Russian Bonds Congress.
This is the fifth year in a row that Sberbank CIB has won accolades at Ñbonds Àwards. Last year the company won three categories: “Best Initial Corporate Bond Placement Deal” for organising Polyus Gold’s series BO-01 bond placement, “Innovation of the Year” for organising the issue of federal bonds with their nominal value indexed to inflation, and “Best Investment Bank (Company) for Work with First Tier Borrowers”.
