Mizuho Recognized for five IFR Awards

February 9, 2024

Mizuho won top billing as Investment-Grade Corporate Bond House of the Year in the 2023 IFR Awards for consistent leadership on behalf of our clients, taking market share from some of the U.S.’s top bulge-bracket banks. We were also recognized for leveraging our core strengths in the Japanese market, launching the biggest IPO of the year and, through our vast cross-border platform, helping global firms reach strategic financing goals.

“It’s much harder to take market share within the Top 10,” said Moshe Tomkiewicz, Head of Investment-Grade Debt Capital Markets. “So, what we’re seeing is the result of a continuous strategy of being in front of our clients on a long-term basis.”

This year, Mizuho is honored to be recognized with the following five awards:

  • Investment-Grade Corporate Bond House of the Year
  • Yen Bond House of the Year
  • North America IPO for our role as active bookrunner and joint global coordinator for chip maker Arm Holdings’ $5.2 billion stock offering
  • Reverse Yankee Bond for our role as bookrunner for IBM’s €8.1 billion-equivalent multi-currency offering
  • Euro Bond and Europe Investment-Grade Corporate Bond for our role as bookrunner on Robert Bosch's €4.5 billion offering 

We are thankful to our committed team and supportive clients for their continued dedication, unyielding efforts and ongoing partnership.
