- #1 in Sweden, #1 in Denmark, #1 among Nordic advisors
Carnegie defends its position and takes new top rankings in its Nordic home market in 2015. This is according to TNS Sifo Prospera's latest survey of financial advisors, in which the company ranks Carnegie highest among Nordic corporate finance advisors.
Carnegie has strengthened an already-leading position in the Nordic market, according to this year's TNS Sifo Prospera survey, based on interviews with companies that have used advisory services for mergers, acquisitions, divestments or other capital market transactions. The investment bank has defended its overall top ranking among Nordic providers, and for individual markets Carnegie has advanced to number one in Sweden overall and has also retained its top ranking in Denmark.
"We have advised on over two-thirds of Swedish IPOs and over half of all IPOs in the Nordic region. This track record builds unbeatable experience within the Carnegie organisation, and we are honoured to have been able to defend our strong market position in Equity Capital Markets. We are equally pleased to have been ranked number one in Mergers & Acquisitions for all advisors by Swedish and Danish companies. We believe this is a recognition of Carnegie’s highly experienced senior professional team and the continuous senior attention we are able to provide throughout the entire transaction.” says Lars-Erik Sjöberg, Head of Investment Banking in Sweden.
The survey is conducted annually, and evaluation criteria include market position, perceived capacity and capabilities, understanding of companies and markets, as well as expertise and execution. According to the client survey, Carnegie ranks highest in both Sweden and Denmark. At the Nordic level, Carnegie is valued highest overall among Nordic advisors, and as number one for mergers and acquisitions.
"We are proud that our clients have awarded us a top position five years in a row, and we view this as an expression of trust and recognition of our work. At the same time, we are very aware that we cannot rely on our past accomplishments. We must constantly merit the trust placed in us, and will put all our effort into continuously improving our services," says Jacob Bastholm, Head of Carnegie Investment Banking in Denmark.
