BDO Capital & Investment Corporation (BDO Capital) has been recognized as the country’s Best Corporate and Institutional Adviser for the 16th straight year at The Asset Triple A Awards. BDO Capital’s noteworthy achievement remains unmatched by any other local investment house as it continues to demonstrate consistent excellence in delivering best-in-class investment banking services across various product lines in the Philippine capital markets catering to small to large clients, issuers and investors, as well as its shareholders and employees.
For more than two decades, BDO Capital continues to be at the forefront of equities and debt capital-raising exercises for both the government and private sector through initial public offerings, follow-on offerings, rights offerings, preferred shares, sovereign bonds, corporate bonds and loans/notes, and project finance with an aggregate amount raised in excess of PHP10 trillion to date. Inspite of the financial crisis in 2008 and even at the height of the ongoing pandemic, BDO Capital has remained resilient and continues to hold its dominance in the domestic investment banking industry. This can be attributed to the Company’s ability to quickly adapt to dynamically changing market conditions.
The merger of Equitable PCIBank and BDO in 2006 has paved the way for a bigger and better investment house combining the outstanding credentials of both PCI Capital Corporation and BDO Capital. Furthermore, BDO Capital is able to take advantage of the complementary strengths of its parent companies, BDO Unibank and the SM Group, in terms of capital backing, distribution reach, clientele base and industry position.
BDO Capital is a full-service investment house offering a wide range of investment banking services, including securities underwriting and trading, loan syndication, financial advisory, private placement of debt and equity, project finance, and direct equity investment. The Company’s continued dominance in the domestic investment banking industry can be attributed to its solid capital strength and stability, unmatched distribution capability and customer-centric approach with its customized, optimal solutions to achieve clients’, issuers’ and investors’ business goals.
“We take pride in our team of hard-working, dedicated and passionate individuals who always put our customers first. Our clients are valuable to us and we definitely do our best to consistently provide them with top-notch structuring and execution, and help them fulfill their business goals given the dynamic conditions in the market,” said Eduardo V. Francisco, President of BDO Capital.
