MUFG had a stellar year in project finance across the globe in all areas of the market’s activity. It currently tops the loan league tables and is third in the bond tables. It has closed a remarkable 187 deals thus far this year via 300 project finance professionals across the globe with offices in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and Melbourne. The bank offers lending, advisory, bonds, hedging, modelling, agency and portfolio management.
BNP Paribas was the outstanding bank in the Americas this year, leading new and innovative transactions in emerging sectors as well as maintaining a strong business in more traditional project finance spaces. The bank’s breadth of production, from underwriting through advisory to hedge providing and beyond, stood out from the crowd.
Bank of the Year – Westpac
Societe Generale combined advisory and underwriting this year to maintain its position as one of the leading project banks. Its advisory effort was led by two power interconnectors deals – a coming sector that SG got into early – for Greenlink and NeuConnect. This is combined with the Champlain Hudson Power Express transmission line into New York and three transmission deals in one year. In the past, getting one down in any year was a struggle despite the ever-growing need for new transmission. SG closed two more advisories in the US, a new LNG deal for Cheniere and the QatarEnergy/Chevron petrochemical financing brought over from JP Morgan.
