EY tops the 2014 league tables as number one global financial advisor for infrastructure
EY finished 2014 leading the key league tables for infrastructure advisory practices by Thomson Reuters Project Finance International (PFI). With 97 global advisory mandates won, EY was the number one global financial advisor by deal volume in 2014. EY was also named the number one regional financial advisor in 2014 by deal volume for both the Americas and Asia-Pacific with 41 and 35 mandates won respectively.
EY's recognition cements an outstanding year for the practice. It was also named the 'Financial Advisor of the Year' in 2014 by P3 (Public Private Partnership) magazine at the annual P3 Awards last October. The award recognized EY's advisory practice for infrastructure across its Americas team including the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and Peru.
Bill Banks, EY's Global Infrastructure Leader commented on the year-end performance:
“EY is honored to have again topped one of the infrastructure industry's most prestigious league tables for global advisory mandates won in 2014. We are proud to note that EY also came top in the Americas and Asia Pacific and second in the EMEIA regional categories. This achievement is truly a global effort across the practice. Despite the challenging economic environment, we have been able to maintain our leading position globally by participating in a number of major transactions over the last year. Our work in global infrastructure, especially in emerging markets helps to build a better working world. EY is delighted by the recognition as market leaders amongst our peers.”
The PFI annual league tables are one of the most accurate and comprehensive measure of project finance activity across the globe in any given year. The league tables are compiled from submissions sent in from commercial banks and financial advisers. Only transactions that are limited or non-recourse are included in the tables. The submissions are checked by Project Finance International (PFI) and Thomson Reuters staff globally. The tables are presented in a regional form and then global tables are calculated from the regional figures.
