Our Asia-Pacific franchise, which specialises in cross-border flows, bridge global SSA, FI and Corporate credits with Asia liquidity, was recognised for excellence at the mtn-i Asia Pacific Awards this year, receiving 4 awards, including the top award: Asian MTN Dealer of the Year.
Benjamin Lamberg, Global Head of MTNs & Private Placements, Head of Credit Asia, commented: “We have built solid cross-border flows bridging continents. From leading the distribution of global credit into Asia, we are also now starting to be a recognised leader in providing Asian credits to global investors.
