Market laps up equity while debt slows to a ripple.
Equity Capital Markets

The equity markets moved ahead last week with issuance totalling $1.6 billion from 21 deals. Goldman Sachs remains welded to the top of the league tables with $2.4 billion from 10 issues, while Nomura and Barclays Capital remain in second and third places.

The largest issue for the week was Korea Exchange BankÆs $728 million accelerated bookbuild led by Goldman Sachs and UBS. The deal enabled UBS to climb up a notch to fourth place from fifth last week.

Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley now sits in the top 10, taking the ninth spot on the back of a $97 million bought deal for Amore Pacific priced late last week and Gail (India)Æs $127 million follow-on, bookrun with Citigroup this week.


Debt Capital Markets

Activity in the debt capital markets slowed to two trades last week, with total volume of only $285 million. Citigroup continues to lead the league table rankings with $1.2 billion from four deals and is followed by UBS and Deutsche Bank.

Lippo Karawaci FinanceÆs $250 million trade accounted for the bulk of volume generated. UBS ran the deal and jumped up to second place from fourth as a result.
