PETALING JAYA: CIMB Investment Bank Bhd is embarking on a multi-faceted strategy as it looks to secure more deals in Asean at a time when the region’s economy is hammered by Covid-19.
It is currently the top investment bank in the debt capital market segment, maintaining its leadership in local currency bonds across Asean. It hopes to maintain the top spot for this year.
CIMB Investment Bank chief executive officer Jefferi Hashim told StarBiz that given the inter-connectivity of the investment banking business as well as its regional franchise, the strategy for the bank has to be multi-faceted.
The underlying theme is investment in human capital, infrastructure and the requisite tools to allow the team to deliver differentiated investment banking services to its clients across Asean.
“Our investments in the regional franchise will allow the bank to continue to deliver and apply a wealth of institutional knowledge and experience acquired over many years for the benefit of our clients across Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand.
“Our established Asean footprint and consistent success over the years has allowed us to continue to invest in our franchise, cementing our leading position in the region.
“The strategy has worked for CIMB as we have rolled out successful initial public offerings (IPOs) in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia in the last two years.Deloitte Malaysia financial services industry investment management leader Khoo Siew Kiat said there would continue to be active M&As and IPO activities albeit at lower numbers (in volume) as compared to the pre-pandemic years.
Jefferi added that CIMB has garnered global recognition for bringing many of its regional clients to the international debt capital markets, being consistently the sole Malaysian-domiciled debt franchise to be mandated for numerous global transactions.
“To date, our franchise completed seven global deals worth about US$7.5bil (RM31.4bil) in aggregate – an area usually dominated by global banks.
We have also demonstrated leadership in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) space – being the largest Asean-based arranger for ESG bonds/sukuk in the markets we operate since 2015,” he noted.
