UBS has been named the world's number one investment banking house by Global Finance, in the publisher's 18th annual survey.

The Global Finance 'World's Best Investment Banks' survey is positioned as a trusted standard of excellence for the global financial community. It is designed to honor those firms that are able to understand the market, execute well, and create innovative and bespoke client solutions.

As well as deal volume and size, the editors ran ratings of each contender's market share, quality of advice and service, structuring capabilities, distribution network, efforts to address market conditions, innovation, pricing, the after-market performance of underwritings, and market reputation through a customized algorithm to find this year's winners.

Piero Novelli, UBS global head of advisory, emphasizes that UBS has paid attention to developing its teams, particularly their ability to collaborate globally. “We are deploying our top bankers and best advisors on the most important clients and most promising deal situations to ensure we are extremely focused". Global Finance commented that "UBS displayed a superlative command over capital markets in the M&A arena despite increasingly volatile asset prices. In the United States, the 155-year-old Swiss bank was quick to spot an opportunity to advise regional US banks on mergers and acquisitions to increase their capitalization."

As well as Best Investment Bank, UBS was also awarded four further titles:

  • Best Investment Bank in Switzerland
  • Best Investment Bank in Kazakhstan
  • Best M&A Bank in the Middle East
  • Best M&A Bank - Global
