VTB Capital wins prestigious international awards
VTB Capital has won two prestigious international awards this year, Mergermarket Europe M&A Awards 2020 and Finance Monthly Global Awards 2020.
Mergermarket named VTB Capital the Russia M&A Financial Advisor of the Year, recognising the investment bank’s work as the best in the country. An independent expert jury awards the title based on the nominees’ performance over the year.
VTB Capital won the annual Finance Monthly Global Awards 2020 in the Investment Banking — UK category. The winners were chosen both by Finance Monthly’s readers and by a professional jury, which assessed their financial performance as well as client testimonials, progressive and innovative leadership style, and implementation of new products and services.
Riccardo Orcel, Head of Global Banking at VTB Capital, said: “This year will go down in the banking industry’s history as one of the most difficult. With a pandemic to tackle, with the borders closed and the self-isolation orders limiting the possibilities for in-person meetings and consultations, VTB Capital’s international team showed unprecedented professionalism and adaptability. Along with our main tasks to preserve the established business ties, stabilise the work of divisions and effectively solve business problems, we also had to create the most comfortable cooperation format for our clients. The investment banking industry has changed a lot over the past 12 months, and I am confident that we have handled all the challenges very well. That is why recognition from the expert community is especially valuable for us.”
