In the financial publication Euromoney’s Awards for Excellence 2008 SEB has won four awards – two awards for the Nordic and Baltic region and two country awards.
SEB was ranked no. 1 in the following categories:
- Best bank in Sweden.
- Best investment bank in Sweden.
- Best mergers & acquisition house in the Nordic & Baltic region.
- Best at cash management in the Nordic & Baltic region.
SEB won this year’s award as best bank in Sweden based on the bank’s ability to grow increasingly strong market positions in private banking, asset management and retail banking, in addition to its leading merchant banking activities, in its home market.
According to Euromoney, the award for best investment bank in Sweden was given to SEB as it has been the driving force in Swedish corporate consolidation this year, advising on 14 M&A deals, 10 of which were cross-border. As well as being a driving force in capital-raising, ranked second in the equity market league table. SEB’s position as best investment bank was also reconfirmed by for the second consecutive time receiving Euromoney’s award for best mergers & acquisitions house for the Nordics and Baltics.
Euromoney’s award for best cash management bank in the Nordic and Baltic region was won by SEB for the sixth consecutive year. The motivation for this year’s win was SEB’s achievement of strong volume growth despite the challenging past 12 months, and the largest integrated cash management network in Europe.
