League Tables: Combined, Bank of America and Merrill are top in underwriting in 2008

September 15, 2008

The combination of Bank of America and Merrill Lynch looks to create a powerhouse in the all-important investment banking league tables, topping current front-runner JP Morgan with, for example, 141 deals to JP Morgan’s 125, in global equity underwriting.

Together, they make the top underwriter for global debt, equity and equity-related transactions since the start of this year.
