Forsyth Barr has received three significant awards at the FinanceAsia 2021 Achievement Awards, including being selected as Best Investment Bank – New Zealand.
The annual Achievement Awards recognise excellence across Asia, Australia and New Zealand financial markets. An advisory board of external experts judged more than 600 submissions in three key categories – House Awards, Deal Awards and Regional Deal Awards.
In the Deal Awards, the acquisition of Tilt Renewables by Mercury and Powering Australian Renewables (PowAR) won the award for Best New Zealand Deal and Best Australian M&A Deal. Forsyth Barr was Joint Financial Adviser to Mercury.
Speaking about the awards, Forsyth Barr Head of Investment Banking Guy Williams said, “Despite the obvious challenges, 2021 has been a busy year and we are delighted to have been able to help a range of clients with their financial and capital requirements. Congratulations to everyone involved in the Tilt transaction and many thanks to all our clients for their support.”
“These three awards recognise not only outstanding achievements, but also our firm’s commitment to service and the ability to problem solve and manage risk. The awards are a great commendation for the firm’s expertise and delivery in New Zealand across mergers & acquisitions, equity capital markets and debt capital markets,” says Forsyth Barr Managing Director Neil Paviour-Smith.
