Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking Scoops IFR’S 2014 Awards for Commodity Derivatives House of the Year & EMEA Structured Equity House of the Year
SG CIB wins two prestigious IFR awards
Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking (SG CIB) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious IFR Commodity Derivatives House of the Year 2014 for the second year in a row and this achievement highlights the bank’s continued commitment to the commodities markets which spans almost 30 years of uninterrupted service to its clients. According to IFR, the integration of Newedge has reshaped SG CIB’s commodities business to account for impending regulatory headwinds, enabling it to gain a competitive advantage and enabling it to chip away at the competition in an environment of squeezed market volumes.
The EMEA Structured Equity House of the Year accolade recognises the outstanding performance of SG CIB’s equity-linked franchise, providing varied and innovative structuring solutions with IFR stating that “SG’s unique flair for the product was best shown in deals that revealed the bespoke nature of structured equity”
In addition, SG CIB was also commended for its expertise in six landmark deals of the year including Euro Bond of the year & SSAR Bond of the Year, and European Investment-Grade Corporate Bond of the Year.
The presentation of the IFR awards was held on 21 January 2015 at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
