LONDON, January 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
London-based International Finance Magazine has conferred the 2014 award for 'Best Investment Bank' in Portugal to CaixaBI. The award was presented on November 18 by the honourable Lord Sheikh, Baron Sheikh of Cornhill, House of Lords; Sheikh Bilal Khan, UK Catalyst at UKTI and Co-Chairman of Dome Advisory and Peter Meyer, CEO, Middle East Association at a gala dinner in the ball room of the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in London.
Caixa - Banco de Investimento, S.A. (CaixaBI) is the investment banking arm of Caixa Geral de Depósitos, S.A. (CGD Group). CGD is the biggest Portuguese banking group, with a strong tradition in the financial system. CaixaBI directly and actively benefits from all CGD group synergies. Special reference should be made to its financial strength and rating. The objective behind the development of a rigorous, transparent architecture is to ensure effective control within CaixaBI, guaranteed by a compliance system and an adequate corporate governance structure.
António Gregório, Managing Director, CaixaBI said: "CaixaBI was a strong contributor for the recovery of the Portuguese economy as we played a very significant role in the boosting of the so needed capital markets, both equity and debt. The operations we lead were landmarks considering that the Portuguese equity capital market was desert for the last five years. It is then a great pleasure to see that CaixaBI's performance in 2013 was noted by International Finance Magazine's analysts which will surely help enhance the global perception about the leading player in the Portuguese investment banking industry."
