Emerging Markets

The first place in Investment Banks League table is taken by HSBC Bank, which placed international bonds for $39.8 bln in 2015 (market share is 9.7%). The second position is occupied by Citigroup ($38.5 bln, 9.4% of the market), JP Morgan is in the third line ($30.7 bln and 7.5% of the market). In 2014 the places were the same.

In total, the league table comprises issues for $411 bln, while in 2014 the placement volume of Plain Vanilla international bonds by EM issuers amounted to $537 bln. In the CIS region the difficult geopolitical situation made it impossible for many issuers to enter the market. The issuers placed only $29.6 bln bonds. JP Morgan tops the Investment banks league table ($3.4 bln), Citigroup ranked second ($2.5 bln), UBI Banca closes the top 3 with the volume of $1 bln. Among the few Russian deals on bond placement in the international market, the first three positions are taken by: UBI Banca ($1 bln), Unicredit ($0.7 bln), JP Morgan ($0.5 bln).
