Forsyth Barr is proud to have been judged "Best Investment Bank – New Zealand" in the annual FinanceAsia Awards for the second year running.
The award is based on each investment bank’s performance across Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Equity Capital Markets (ECM) and Debt Capital Markets (DCM) during the year and is heavily contested.
Not only did Forsyth Barr win the Best Investment Bank, they also were the recipients of the “FinanceAsia Best New Zealand Deal of the Year” for their role as sole defence advisor to the Bapcor/Hellaby Holdings $431m takeover.
The wins cap off a big year for the Forsyth Barr Investment Banking team who advised on over $3.2 billion worth of transactions, advising parties both in New Zealand and offshore. Over the year Forsyth Barr’s work in ECM and DCM saw them top the league tables at number 1, and number 2 in M&A*.
None of Forsyth Barr Limited or its related companies are registered banks.
