EMEA Finance, a news magazine covering the capital and financial markets in the EMEA region, has named Deutsche Bank the ‘Best Depositary Receipt House’ of 2013 in its annual Achievement Awards. Although the Bank has won Best Depositary Receipt Program twice already, this is the first year it has taken the coveted title of overall best depositary receipt house.
The awards, now in their sixth year, are an annual round-up of “the best deals and dealmakers” in the region. The submissions are analysed and assessed by EMEA Finance’s panel of independent capital markets specialists.
Commenting on the results, Tim Burke, editor, EMEA Finance, said that this was “a well-deserved win for the [Deutsche Bank] team and testament to its involvement in some high-profile programmes across the EMEA region during the past year. The bank has a strong track record and enjoyed real breadth of success last year, from historical leadership in Western Europe, Russia and the Gulf to emerging as a leader in Kazakhstan, South Africa and Turkey.”
“We’ve been No. 1 in EMEA league tables for three consecutive years,” added Jose Sicilia, Global Head, Global Equity Services, Deutsche Bank “and, with innovations like our virtual investor conference and AGM resolution assessment tool, we’re always striving to deliver the most value we can for issuers and investors alike. We’re extremely proud of this award which I think we owe to our unflinching focus on client service and satisfaction.”
