The awards garnered by Euromoney, a leading capital markets publication, include a #1 ranking globally for Real Estate Financial Services and a #1 ranking globally for Transaction Execution. Perhaps even more noteworthy is Catella's Top 5 global ranking in Investment Banking, a milestone that places the company alongside the world's largest financial institutions.
The Euromoney Awards for Excellence in Real Estate are the result of an extensive four-month survey. Conducted through a peer review process, firms were asked to acknowledge the best in class among their competitors for various distinctions in the property and banking sectors. Private and institutional clients were also polled to determine the advisors and banks they most rely on for property and corporate finance transactions.
As Johan Ericsson, Group Chief Executive of the Catella Property Group comments, "This year's results are nothing but satisfying for us. We have taken great strides in recent years to distinguish ourselves as the leading property corporate finance company in Europe. The fact that we have received such high distinctions from both our clients and our competitors is a true credit to the investments we have made in our business strategy and our personnel."
In addition to the global rankings, The Catella Property Group also received a number of top rankings for various European markets including: #4 Overall Property Advisory in Western Europe, #1 Investment Banking Nordics, #1 Investment Banking Belgium, #1 Investment Banking Denmark, #1 Property Advisory Finland, #1 Corporate Real Estate Services Sweden.
All award winners will be recognized at the Euromoney Awards Ceremony, October 6, 2005 in London. For a complete summary of the Euromoney rankings and awards, please see the September edition of Euromoney Magazine or visit www.euromoney.com.
