Maybank Investment Bank has won Malaysia’s Best Investment Bank in the prestigious Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2021 for the sixth time, on the back of multiple landmark transactions amidst a challenging market environment.
It said in a statement that Euromoney highlighted Maybank IB’s leading role in MISC and KLCC Stapled Group’s US$750.4mil concurrent secondary placement, the largest ever transport and REIT follow on offering in Malaysia as well as the largest-ever concurrent secondary placements in Malaysia.
Maybank IB was joint principal advisor and joint bookrunner. In advisory, the most notable deal was the acquisition of FGV Holdings by Federal Land Development Authority (Felda).
Maybank IB also helped IHH Healthcare, DRB-Hicom and Permodalan Nasional Berhad with acquisitions and divestments. In the debt market, key deals included a sustainability sukuk musharakah for Sime Darby Property, Euromoney said.
“We are honoured to be recognised as Malaysia’s Best Investment Bank by Euromoney once again, especially in what has been a challenging year. We couldn’t have done it without our dedicated teams who adapted quickly, and our clients’ trust in us to deliver during these unprecedented times,” said Maybank IB CEO Fad’l Mohamed.
