BDA named Investment Banking Firm of the Year – Asia Pacific

BDA Partners was named Investment Banking Firm of the Year – Asia Pacific in the 13th Annual International M&A Awards.  

These awards are judged by The M&A Advisor, the world’s premier leadership organisation of M&A, turnaround and finance professionals. BDA was previously named Firm of the Year in consecutive years. This latest award is a recognition of BDA’s unique regional and global presence, and the firm’s exceptional record of closing transactions across Asia, even during the pandemic and volatile markets.   

BDA was recognised for achievements on behalf of clients including Baring Private Equity Asia, Bristol Myers Squibb, Carlyle, Doosan, EQT, Navis, Partners Group, Platinum Equity, and Toshiba.  

Over 26 years, BDA has built a well-integrated worldwide team, made up of best-in-class Asia-focused bankers across nine offices in key Asian cities, as well as New York and London.

Notwithstanding the geopolitical, trade and macroeconomic uncertainties over the later stage of Covid-19, BDA expects to close more than 40 transactions on behalf of clients during 2022. Superior deal outcomes are driving record BDA fee levels as the investment banking firm heads into H2 2022 with a best-ever pipeline of future fees. 

Euan Rellie, BDA Managing Partner, said: “We’re honoured to have been recognised, again, as the leading investment banking firm for Asia. Our 125 bankers are working tirelessly to deliver creative and optimal results for clients worldwide. We’re determined, whenever possible, to surpass client expectations. Our junior and mid-level teams are demonstrating high productivity. We benefit from camaraderie and teamwork, as well as a diverse and talented group of Managing Directors and Partners. We’re grateful for everyone who has hired us, and worked with us. We’re preparing for the next stage of growth, and to do better in the future”.
