• The Treasurer’s Deals of the Year Awards 2014

    Deals of the yearFor the 8th successive year, Lloyds Bank partnered The Treasurer's Deals of the Year Awards, held on 5th February 2015 at Banking Hall, London.

    The Deals of the Year Awards are the only treasury awards where the winners are judged by fellow practitioners and celebrate the achievements of the corporate treasurer. All deal types are considered and are judged not on the size of the deal but on demonstrating innovation and excellence in treasury.

    More than 163 nominations across all categories were submitted this year and the nominees raised over £137bn of finance in aggregate. In particular, special congratulations go to Sky PLC their selection as Overall Deals of the Year Winner (as well as their specific Corporate Finance award). Phoenix Group won the UK Treasury Team (market cap below £2bn) award and Sainsbury’s won the Loans <£750m category. These were all deals Lloyds Bank was proud to support.

    At this year’s event, Lloyds was represented by Andrew Bester, CEO, Commercial Banking; Clare Francis, Managing Director, Global Corporates; and Ed Smith, Managing Director Global Transaction Banking supported by colleagues from across Global Corporates, Capital Markets, Transaction Banking and Financial Markets.

    Clare Francis said “I was delighted to represent Lloyds Bank once again on the judging panel; our sponsorship of The Treasurer's Deals of The Year Awards enables Lloyds to demonstrate its support of European treasuries whilst recognising our clients’ successes and achievements in 2014."

    Lloyds Bank would like to congratulate all the winners at this year’s event:
