SG CIB named IFR's Commodity Derivatives House of the Year

SG CIB wins the award for the first time.

SG CIB has been named International Financing Review's 2013 "Commodity Derivatives House of the Year", the first time the bank has picked up this prestigious award.

The bank was recognised for expanding its capabilities through financial innovation and improved content in the face of unprecedented regulatory scrutiny in 2013.

Societe Generale was also amongst the banks honoured for their role in key client deals:

- EMEA STRUCTURED EQUITY ISSUE - Amorim Energia's €400m Exchangeable bond
The transaction has been viewed as a game changer in the equity-linked market, clearing the way for other deals seen in the market thereafter.

- EUROPEAN INVESTMENT-GRADE CORPORATE BOND - EDF's €6.2bn-equivalent inaugural hybrid bond
The largest hybrid ever from a company and one of the most innovative transactions in 2013.

Presentation of the IFR Awards will be held on 22 January 2014 at Grosvenor House hotel, London.
