And the 14th mtn-i MTN Award Winners are…

When Markets Get Tough, MTNs Get Going!

More than ever before 2016 showed how the most challenging conditions drive innovation and solutions in MTNs and private placements.

And mtn-i’s 14th Annual Awards underline dealers and issuers’ resilience in engineering new products in the face of adversity, and in some cases the extraordinary depth of these capital markets.

We received a record number of pitches from 27 institutions this year and the winners represent the richest and most diverse range of solutions, dealers, issuers, investors and private markets we’ve ever recognised. Alongside our expanded daily coverage, this year’s mtn-i Awards recognise the full spectrum of private market activity, including Schuldscheine, green PPs and Euro PPs.

More than MTNs…

  • Nearly 30 submissions from institutions
  • mtn-i recognitions embrace Schuldscheine, PP, Euro PP and green PP markets
  • Historic low / negative yields and volatility highs drive innovation
  • Top borrowers lead swing from public to private market funding
  • New structures such as holdco TLAC/MREL and operational risk
  • Frontier FX markets opening
  • Cross-regional issuer and investor interactions intensify
  • New issuer and dealers establish footprints in private markets.

Volumes down, innovation up!

MTN volumes might have been down, but ingenuity and market evolution were definitely up!

Our Awards are not just about picking winners – but revealing and spotlighting the full range of opportunity and value available in below-radar private markets. And that’s why our event on February 9th is not just a celebration dinner, but a networking lunch and afternoon showcase of credit and product solutions.


We are proud of the spotlight our award decisions this year throw on the future evolution of private markets and the expanded daily coverage. They illuminate…

  • The expanding footprint of private markets across the globe from Canada to the Middle Eas to Mexico!
  • The evolution of entirely new capital products and structured yield solutions from holdco to op risk!
  • The intensification of cross-regional issuer and investor interactions and capital flows from Taiwan to Algeria!
  • The bipolar battle for positive yields for investors and negative rates for borrowers
  • The future of structured products in cross-dealer and cross-asset structuring platforms.

So here they are, mtn-i’s 2016 Award Winners!
