Moelis & Company Honoured at The Banker’s Annual Awards Ceremony

London, October 10, 2011

Moelis & Company today announced that it has won Most Innovative Boutique of the Year and Most Innovative Bank for Asset & Liability Management at The Banker’s annual Investment Banking Awards 2011.  This marks the second consecutive year Moelis & Company has won the award for Most Innovative Boutique.

The firm received the industry recognition as a result of a strong year including continued expansion across geographies and industry sectors. It is also recognition of the firm’s role in advising on a series of high profile global transactions across its integrated platform of advisory services, incorporating Mergers & Acquisitions, Recapitalisation & Restructuring, Capital Markets and Risk Advisory.

Ken Moelis, Chief Executive Officer of Moelis & Company, said, “When we founded Moelis & Company in 2007 it was with the firm belief that we could do things a better way: with innovation, sound judgment and integrity. These awards are a tremendous endorsement of this strategy, of the team we’ve built globally, and they recognise the strength of the independent advisory model.”

Remarking on Moelis & Company’s Most Innovative Boutique award win, the panel of judges said, “Boutique investment banks have flourished in the past four years as their blend of independent advisory services has appealed to a growing number of clients in the wake of the financial crisis. None more so than Moelis & Co. So successfully has Moelis ridden this wave that it becomes ever more difficult to call the firm a boutique at all.”

For the Asset and Liability Management award, the panel said, “Asset and liability management crosses investment banking disciplines. For this reason, the vision pursued by Moelis & Co since its creation has proven ideally suited to advising ALM clients.”
