SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evercore (NYSE: EVR), the leading global independent investment banking advisory firm, was once again recognized as the Best M&A Adviser in Singapore by The Asset magazine at its 2019 Triple A Country Awards ceremony in Hong Kong on January 16, 2020.
The annual awards, now in their 21st year, are Asia’s preeminent recognition for best-in-class institutions operating within the region. Evercore has received this award four of the past five years since 2015, the first full year that Evercore obtained its Capital Markets Services (“CMS”) license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Since its establishment, Evercore has advised on some of the largest, most complex and transformational transactions in Singapore, one of the world’s largest financial centers.
Keith Magnus, co-Chairman of Evercore’s business in Asia, commented, “We are deeply honored to be recognized as the best advisory firm for M&A in Singapore for the fourth time in the last five years. We have steadily built our franchise in this market over the years and remain passionate about delivering the best advice and the most meticulous execution possible for our clients. We dedicate this award to our clients and thank them for their continued faith in us.”
“We will continue to take steps to strengthen our position and are committed to achieving our clients’ objectives through world class strategic advice and transaction execution,” Mr. Magnus continued.
Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer of Evercore, said, “I am extremely proud of the growth of our Singapore business in the past five years and of the advice that we have provided to the largest corporates, government-linked institutions, prominent families, financial sponsors and businesses within the region. This recognition is a strong testament to the continued success of our Singapore franchise. Since its official launch in 2015, the team has executed a broad array of M&A advisory, capital advisory and capital raising assignments, underpinned by the strength of the Singapore talent base. Keith Magnus’ reputation as a world-class trusted adviser is evident in the deal outcomes achieved for our clients. We are confident that Evercore Singapore will remain a core pillar of the Firm given its success and Singapore’s position as a key strategic hub for Asia.”
Evercore provides conflict-free, expert advice to clients regarding the execution of key strategic initiatives including cross-border transactions and the deployment of strategic capital.
