The Asset Triple A Awards recognize BDO Capital
BDO Capital & Investment Corporation (BDO Capital) is the country’s Best Corporate and Institutional Adviser for 16 straight years. The recognition came from The Asset Triple A Awards.
The award recognizes BDO Capital’s impressive achievement as unmatched by any local investment house. It continues to show consistent distinction in delivering best-in-class investment banking services across various product lines in the Philippine capital markets. BDO Capital caters to the needs of small to large clients, investors, issuers, and its shareholders and employees.
For over 20 years, BDO Capital has remained at the lead in equities and debt capital-raising exercises for the government and private sector. It delivers through initial public offerings and follow-on offerings. It also produces rights offerings, preferred shares, sovereign bonds, corporate bonds, loans/notes, and project finance, with an aggregate amount of more than PHP10 trillion. Despite the financial crisis in 2008 and even at the height of the ongoing pandemic, BDO Capital has remained resilient. As a result, it continues to dominate the domestic investment banking industry despite the dynamic change in the market.
BDO and Equitable PCIBank merged last 2006, which paved the way for a better and bigger investment house combining the outstanding credentials of BDO Capital and PCI Capital Corporation. Furthermore, BDO Capital can always take advantage of the complementary strengths of its parent companies, BDO Unibank and the SM Group. This includes capital backing, clientele base, distribution reach, and industry position.
BDO Capital is BDO Unibank’s investment banking arm. It is a full-service investment house offering a wide range of investment banking services. To name a few are financial advisory, loan syndication, and private placement of debt and equity. In addition, direct equity investment, project finance, and securities underwriting and trading are also included.
The Company’s continued supremacy in the domestic investment banking industry is attributed to its solid capital strength, stability, and unmatched distribution capability. One cannot dismiss that BDO Capital utilizes a customer-centric approach with its customized, optimal solutions. It always aims to achieve clients’, issuers’, and investors’ business goals.
Eduardo V. Francisco, President of BDO Capital, said that the company “takes pride in its team of hard-working, dedicated, and passionate individuals. The team always puts the customer’s needs first. The company values its clients the most and everyone in the company does their best to provide their top-notch services unfailingly. It is BDO Capital’s goal to fulfill its client’s business goals given the dynamic conditions in the market.
The Asset Triple A Awards identify companies for their notable performance in banking, capital markets, finance, and treasury. The Asset Awards judges use highly uncompromising criteria, which include consultation with issuers and investors. The issuers and investors constitute the bulk of The Asset’s readership base as part of the selection process. In addition, point scores for quantitative and qualitative factors are combined to determine the winners. Also, the Asset editorial team conducts follow-up interviews and participates in presentations organized by the participating banks.
Aside from The Asset Awards, BDO Capital also received international and local recognition as the Best Investment Bank in the Philippines. The honor came from various prestigious publications and associations such as Alpha Southeast Asia, Asiamoney, Acquisition International, Asian Banking and Finance, Asia Pacific Loan Market Association, Finance Asia, Global Finance, and Investment House Association of the Philippines (IHAP).
