Euromoney magazine names BBVA best bank in Latin America

Leading figures from Latin American banking and capital markets met in London Thursday to hear the announcement that Euromoney magazine named BBVA the best bank in Latin America.

"BBVA has been strengthening in Latin America for many years and is a leading retail bank in nearly all of largest MARKETS in the region," the Euromoney release said. "The bank’s network is a very important part of the bank’s global business. Regulatory changes will drive increased competition from regional players from within Latin America – HSBC and Citi’s retail retreat from Latin America is proof of that – but BBVA has set the standard for those that wish to develop truly regional banking breadth."

Citi received the award for best investment bank in the region, and was named best investment bank in Argentina and Peru.

DCM won best regional debt house by extending its market share across nearly all debt segments.

JPMorgan was named best regional equity house.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch won best mergers and acquisition house due to the breadth of its mandates in Latin America, with the bank leading in mergers and acquisition fee generation.

HSBC won best flow house and best risk house – a reflection of the investment the bank has made in its trading platform in recent years.

BAC International Bank was named the best bank in Central America and the Caribbean.
