Best Telecom House
When we did the analysis of who had done what in telecom this year, we came up with an interesting league table. Goldman Sachs topped the chart by a massive margin. We equally apportioned credit for equity, debt and MA deals, and using this methodology, Goldman's 14 deals represented $22 billion. Its strongest bulge bracket competitor was Merrill Lynch, which accrued $10.15 billion in seven deals. This underlines Goldman's dominance in the telecom field in Asia.
With 24 experienced telecom bankers across four Asian cities, and Institutional Investor's top-ranked telecom research team, this should come as no surprise.
