The Euromoney Awards for Excellence are one of the most respected awards in the financial services industry. The Global awards cover best in class awards in all regions, and single out the outstanding institutions in finance. They recognise institutions and individuals that demonstrate leadership, innovation, and momentum in the markets in which they excel.

This is the fourth time Deutsche Craigs has won this award in the past five years. The award recognises Deutsche Craigs’ position in the New Zealand market as a business focused on delivering excellence for clients.

“This recognition from one of the finance industry’s most prestigious awards reflects the capability and experience from the Deutsche Craigs team, who are committed to deliver excellent outcomes for their clients. Integration of local knowledge with the global capabilities of Deutsche Bank is continually sought after by clients” said Frank Aldridge – Managing Director; Craigs Investment Partners.

Deutsche Craigs has executed successful equity and debt capital markets deals, such as the Oceania IPO and Pushpay placement and some of New Zealand’s largest recent Mergers and Acquisitions, including the $1.2bn Nuplex takeover.

Brett Shepherd, CEO of Deutsche Craigs, remains bullish on the outlook for both debt and equity capital markets and mergers and acquisitions in New Zealand. “There continues to be high investor demand as investors seek quality investment opportunities, and as a result more vendors are looking to bring quality assets to the market both publically and privately. Growing capital access and lower cost of capital requirements from purchasers, continued access to debt, both through banks and capital markets as well as strong equity markets provides a robust platform for continued market activity.
