KUALA LUMPUR: Maybank Investment Bank Bhd (Maybank IB) has topped Bloomberg’s 2017 league tables for global sukuk and Asean loan syndication by book runners.

It also came in second place in Bloomberg’s Asean Local Currency Bonds ranking.

Maybank IB said in a statement yesterday that the bank dominated the overall investment banking and advisory deals, ranking No 1 in the Dealogic IB&A League Table for 2017. In addition, it topped Bloomberg’s 2017 league tables for merger and acquisition and ringgit Islamic sukuk.

“We are proud to have built this home-grown investment bank to become a key regional player today, providing solutions to our clients across Asean to fulfil their aspirations.”
