SEB top ranked by Euromoney - winner of nine categories

SEB was ranked no. 1 in the following categories:
 
  • Best Bank in Sweden
  • Best Equities House in the Nordic & Baltic region
  • Best Mergers & Acquisition House in the Nordic & Baltic region
  • Best Cash Management in the Nordic & Baltic region
  • Best Mergers & Acquisition House in Sweden
  • Best Mergers & Acquisition House in Norway
  • Best Equities House in Estonia
  • Best Mergers & Acquisition House in Latvia
  • Best Equities House in Lithuania
 
Euromoney's motivation for the Best Bank in Sweden was the strength and breadth in practically all areas of the bank - from life insurance to retail and merchant banking.
 
SEB has held the position of best Merger & Aquisitions House and Equities House in the Nordic countries for many years, and has now received the same award for the geographically enlarged category, the Nordic and Baltic region. According to Euromoney, SEB's breadth of activities is demonstrated by the 47 completed Mergers & Aquisition transactions on which it was adviser during the judged period and its leading market share (7.8 per cent) in equity trading on the Nordic and Baltic stock exchanges.
 
This is the fifth consecutive year that SEB has received the award for Best Cash Management in the Nordic & Baltic region. The reason for the award according to Euromoney is SEB's expanded presence in 27 European countries, its impressive markets share among Nordic multinationals and innovative solutions such as the Cash Management Value Chain.
