Held annually and now in its 19thyear, the Triple A awards are Asia’s preeminent recognition for best-in-class institutions operating within the region. This marks the third consecutive year that Evercore has been awarded this prestigious title of “Best M&A Adviser” in Singapore, which no other investment bank has ever accomplished three years in a row.
Over the past three years, Evercore has advised on some of the largest, most complex and transformational transactions in Singapore, the world’s third largest financial centre. In 2017, Evercore was the most active firm advising Singapore-based corporates, based on both the number of deals advised on as well as advised deal value1. Amongst the landmark transactions that Evercore in Singapore has advised on in 2017, a number have won a series of deal awards from leading industry publications.
Keith Magnus, Co-Chairman of Evercore’s business in Asia, commented, “We are deeply humbled to be recognised as the best advisory firm for M&A in Singapore for the third year running. This is an endorsement of the quality of our advice which is valued by our clients and marks yet another major milestone for Evercore Singapore. Our third consecutive award in Singapore underscores the great strides we have made in being the adviser of choice to corporates and billionaires in the region.”

We dedicate this award to all our clients and look forward to the continued partnership with them in the years to come.” Mr. Magnus said.
Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer of Evercore, said, “Being recognised as the “Best M&A Adviser” for the third year running is a strong testament to Evercore’s strength globally, Keith Magnus’ standing as a world-class trusted adviser and the strength of the team he has built.
