Barclays Capital named ‘Best Investment Bank in MENA region’


In recognition of its continued leadership in the investment banking industry, Barclays Capital announced today that it has been named the “Best Investment Bank in the Middle East and North Africa” (MENA) region by Banker Middle East, one of the leading magazines dedicated to the regional financial services sector.

Barclays Capital received this prestigious accolade at the annual Banker Middle East Investment Awards, which were recently held in Dubai.

John Vitalo, Chief Executive Officer, Barclays Plc, MENA, said: “Our universal banking model continues to serve our clients effectively across the MENA region, providing them with integrated solutions for their evolving financial requirements and objectives. We look forward to continued success over the coming period.”

Makram Azar, Head of Investment Banking, MENA, and Senior Relationship Banker, EMEA, at Barclays Capital, continued: “This award attests to our continued momentum and our success in delivering comprehensive and innovative world-class solutions to our clients.”

Barclays Capital has established itself as a true regional leader in debt and equity capital markets through its range of award-winning financial solutions. Earlier this year, Barclays Capital received two awards at the Islamic Finance News Awards. The firm was also recently named the “Best Debt House in Qatar” by Euromoney, one of the world’s leading financial markets magazines.

The Banker Middle East Investment Awards, which are open to financial services firms across the MENA region, are based on a peer voting process. The awards are designed to encourage, inspire and reward distinction in the industry, raising standards throughout the MENA region.
