Moelis & Company (NYSE: MC), a leading global independent investment bank, today announced that it has been named Investment Bank of the Year for Private Placements at The Banker Magazine’s 2020 Investment Banking Awards.

The Banker’s Investment Banking Awards recognize the institutions that deliver industry-leading service for their clients. In recognizing Moelis’ private placement capabilities, the judging panel praised the Firm’s ability to demonstrate “strong outcomes for clients at a time of market disruption.”

Navid Mahmoodzadegan, Co-President of Moelis & Company, said, “In the past six months our clients have faced an unprecedented need for liquidity and high quality advice as COVID-19 disrupted business operations. We are pleased The Banker has recognized our ability to deliver a virtual balance sheet for clients, across both debt and equity private placements, in one of the most challenging economic environments. We have recently doubled the size of our capital markets team and are incredibly excited about our expanded capabilities and continuing to build on our tremendous momentum.”

Earlier this year Moelis & Company strengthened its capital markets capabilities by appointing two new Managing Directors, including Angus Whelchel as Head of Private Capital Markets and Steven Halperin at Head of Equity Public Markets. Together they work with the Firm’s global network of sector and product bankers to deliver unique capital solutions to clients.

The Banker recognized Moelis & Company’s deal expertise in its 2020 Deal of the Year awards, awarding the Firm five wins on deals spanning Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific.
