MUFG has been named as the winner of the 'best arranger of project finance loans', at the GlobalCapital Syndicated Loan, Leveraged Finance and Private Placement Awards 2016.

The awards were based on a poll of loan market participants, conducted at the end of 2016. They are the only awards that recognise market achievement in the EMEA loan market, based on the opinion of the market.

MUFG also played a key role on the winner of the 'best project finance loan' award, the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm deal from May 2016, with multi tranche debt financing of £1.96 billion. MUFG not only acted as financial advisor to the sponsors, but was also one of the bookrunners on the transaction.

Simon Orchard, Head of Project Finance Syndications for MUFG EMEA said:

“I am delighted that we have received this marketplace recognition from our peers, on behalf of GlobalCapital. MUFG has been ranked as the market-leader for project finance globally on numerous occasions, and it is great to have this reflected in award wins too."
