The Banker Investment Banking Awards 2018
SG CIB has been named, for the second consecutive year, Most Innovative Investment Bank for Risk Management and Most Innovative Investment Bank for Fixed Income, Currencies, Commodities (Ficc) Trading at The Banker Investment Banking Awards 2018.
Most Innovative Investment Bank for Risk Management
This award recognizes the bank’s expertise in helping clients manage the risk cycle with innovative solutions. One of our key strengths is our cross-asset expertise and the holistic approach of our own risk management challenges which enables us to provide unique, innovative and cost-effective solutions to our clients – often featuring ideas that improve liquidity in a given sector.
As rates begin to rise globally and the equity bull market shows signs of strain, there will be inevitable challenges for investors and corporates in managing cross-asset risks, including credit and FX exposures. By adapting to market conditions and to the needs of our clients, we continuously strive to innovate and provide clients with the highest quality of advisory services and customized solutions.
Most Innovative Investment Bank for Fixed Income, Currencies, Commodities (FICC) Trading
Concern about higher interest rates combined with renewed political risk in Europe has increased fixed income trading activity by clients over the last year. This award recognizes the innovative and client-tailored strategies and products that our market experts develop to help clients effectively manage their risks and exposures as well as seize opportunities presented by high volatility.
Also highlighted by the award are our market leading FICC digital capabilities. As early adopters of digital innovation in this space, we are encouraging fixed income markets to go fully electronic by anticipating change, rather than resisting it.
