Bonds & Loans 2017 Awards

21 February 2017

We received impressive recognition at the Bonds & Loans 2017 awards having acted on a remarkable number of award-winning deals.

Our outstanding showing came in the Bonds & Loans Awards 2017, organised by the GFC Media Group.

"Being selected as finalists in a number of categories was reason enough for pride, but going on to win so many awards was truly fantastic. We concentrated on developing work in the financial markets for a number of key clients, and it has yielded dividends." says Güniz Gökce.

This Turkish red letter day came on the evening of February 21, at a glamorous gala dinner hosted at the Esma Sultan Palace in Istanbul. A full list of awards can be found here, but standout successes on the night were "International Bond Deal of the Year," "Syndicated Loan of the Year" and "Transport Finance Deal of the Year."
