Emboldened by the region’s undiminished progress through the worst global crisis since the 1930s, as well as the relative paucity of business in other regions, LatAm investment bankers generally capitalized on the opportunity. Although volume and revenue have not yet returned to 2007 levels, financiers region-wide predict a return to that golden year.
This makes judging the LatinFinance Deals of the Year particularly challenging, as most categories have more than two very strong candidates. Nonetheless, through an intensive evaluation process, supported by our unrivalled access to decision makers at the leading issuers, investors, banks and law firms, we have picked our winners.
Biggest, tightest, longest, cheapest. Superlatives abound when describing LatAm capital markets and advisory for the last 12 months, and many bankers expect the good times to continue rolling.
