Moelis & Company Wins Euromoney Magazine’s Award for Best Advisory Bank in the Middle East

Dubai, May 09, 2018

Moelis & Company (NYSE: MC), a leading global independent investment bank, today announced its recognition by Euromoney Magazine as the Best Advisory Bank in the Middle East. This is the third time in five years Euromoney has recognized the strength of Moelis & Company’s Middle East business, having also named the Firm as the Best Investment Bank in the UAE in 2013 and 2016.

The industry magazine highlighted Moelis & Company’s ability to provide comprehensive advice across capital markets, M&A, recapitalization and restructuring to corporates and governments in the region. The Firm was recognized for its longstanding commitment to the Middle East and the successful track record it has built since opening its Dubai office in 2010.

The judges said, “Advisory work in the Middle East has shifted away from big-ticket international M&A buy-outs, towards helping governments implement their longer-term plans and financing strategies, and helping regional corporates restructure their business models and liabilities, in an era of lower growth and (perhaps) higher interest rates. Having set up a Dubai office in 2010, Moelis & Co has emerged as preeminent in this new model of regional advisory.”

“We are proud of the trusted relationships we have built over the years with our clients in the Middle East,” said Rami Touma, Managing Director, Moelis & Company Dubai. “This recognition illustrates our long-term commitment to delivering world-class advisory capabilities to assignments across every product, industry, and geography.”
