Sustainable bond lead manager league table for Q1-Q3 2021


Looking back on the first three quarters of 2021 as we approach the end of the year we can see that JP Morgan was by far the largest lead manager with BNP Paribas a not too distant second while there was a tight cluster of lead managers vying for a spot in the top 5 in HSBC, BAML and CACIB. There is a significant difference between the top spot and the 15th spot, but with a lot of lead managers to breaching the top 15 there is likely to be a fair amount of movement in the bottom third of the top 15 at the end of the year.
