Carnegie still number one in Nordic corporate transactions 2017
- According to the annual Kantar Sifo Prospera customer survey
Carnegie remains a good steward of client trust and business opportunities in the market. In addition to Carnegie Investment Bank’s high share of transaction mandates during the year, corporate clients once again gave Carnegie the highest ranking among advisers in the Nordic market, according to the latest Kantar Sifo customer survey.
Carnegie has again topped the adviser rankings in the Nordic corporate transactions market, both overall and in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and equity capital market transactions (ECM), according to the latest Kantar Sifo customer survey. The evaluation covers assessment criteria including market position, capacity, understanding of companies and markets, as well as execution and expertise. The survey is conducted among Nordic companies that have engaged advisory services for ECM transactions, M&A or divestments.
“The corporate transactions market has remained favourable in 2017 and Carnegie has successfully leveraged the conditions within both M&A and ECM. We have, for example, been entrusted with advising 20 out of 27 larger IPOs in the Nordic market so far this year, across all geographies,” says Ulf Vucetic, Head of Investment Banking.
In addition to topping the overall ranking in the Nordics, Carnegie has maintained a leading position in Denmark, advanced in the rankings in Norway and defended its first place for both M&A and ECM in Sweden.
“Business activity among Swedish companies has been high for several years and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to help these exciting companies thrive and develop. Looking only at major Swedish IPOs, Carnegie has been involved in nearly all transactions during the year, in a wide range of sectors. We are also delighted to have firmly established ourselves after some years away from the Finnish market, where we participated in most of the largest transactions in the market, including the listings of Terveystalo and Rovio, as well as the sale of Evac Group by IK Investment Partners,” says Lars-Erik Sjöberg, Head of Investment Banking Sweden/Finland.
