GIB Capital, the Riyadh-based investment banking and regional asset management arm of Gulf International Bank (GIB), is proud to announce that they won two Global Finance Magazine Awards: “Best Investment Bank for new Financial Technology in Middle East” and “Best Investment Bank in Bahrain”.   This was recently announced by Global Finance Magazine, New York, in an exclusive survey to be published in the April 2018 issue.

 

The results of the awards were based on the degree to which the selected banks demonstrate exceptional depth of market understanding and service excellence, as well as their fresh solution offerings to meet client needs in the rapidly evolving market.

In addition, GIB Capital was Joint Lead Manager and Joint Bookrunner for the successfully pricing of a US$ 3.0 billion multi-tranche bond issuance for the Kingdom of Bahrain, represented by the Ministry of Finance (“Bahrain”). This was Bahrain’s largest ever syndicated debt capital markets transaction, drawing in excess of US$ 15.0 billion of demand.
