Daiwa named IFR's Yen Bond House of the Year

18 January 2012

Daiwa Capital Markets has been named IFR's Yen Bond House of the Year. The accolade recognises the firm's excellence in the market and is widely regarded to be the pre-eminent yen bond award. This follows Daiwa's success in the EuroWeek Awards in 2011 when it was named Best Uridashi Dealer and Best Supra/Agency Yen House.

IFR's Editors commented: "In an increasingly globalised world, one Japanese house unashamedly rediscovered its core strength in yen as an independent investment bank, using this as a stepping stone to other markets. For its rise back to prominence in a busy year, while creating opportunities for both buyers and sellers and underlining its cross-linked execution capabilities, Daiwa Capital Markets is IFR’s Yen Bond House of the Year."

IFR is published by Thomson Reuters and its annual awards are regarded as the "Oscars of the financial markets." Daiwa was also recognised for its role as joint lead manager in Panasonic's 500 billion yen issue, winning the Yen Bond of the Year award.
