Equity Capital Markets
Total issuance in the equity capital markets reached $579 million this week from 11 deals. Goldman Sachs continues to hold onto the top position in the league table rankings with Morgan Stanley and Citigroup rounding out the top three.
A $370 million accelerated bookbuild for South Korea's SK Corp was the biggest issue of the week and was led by UBS. UBS is currently ranked fourth with $6.7 billion from 33 deals.
Little separates the top three places in the league tables as the year draws to a close with only a $138 million difference between first and second place and an even slimmer margin of $42 million between second and third.
The $2.5 billion IPO for Link Reit should boost league table credit for bookrunners Goldman Sachs, HSBC and UBS, as will Dongfeng Motor Corp's $500 million IPO for lead banks Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and CICC.

The debt capital markets sprang back to life this week with $1.3 billion raised from three trades. Deutsche Bank snuck ahead of Citigroup to take first place in the league tables with $4.9 billion from 20 deals.
Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan printed a $500 million trade for ICICI Bank (Singapore), while KEXIM also raised $500 million via bookrunners Credit Suisse First Boston, HSBC and UBS.
