Absa Capital, the investment banking division of Absa Bank Ltd, has further underlined its claim on becoming South Africa’s leading investment bank through its strong showing in the annual Risk magazine survey for 2008.

Absa Capital was ranked first overall in the Currency Products category and second overall out of the ten firms surveyed, significantly closing the gap on the overall frontrunner. The gap between the first ranked bank and Absa Capital was narrowed to 0.6%.

Absa Capital recorded eight first positions in the surveyed categories.

Absa Capital performed strongly in Cross-Currency Swaps, Currency Forwards and Currency Options to walk way with the overall plaudits in the Currency Products category, but also performed very well in the Interest Rate category.

Individual stand-out performances were recorded in Interest Rate Swaps, Repurchase Agreements, Interest Rate Swaps, Interest Rate Exotics, and Forward-Rate Agreements.

The Equity Products category also saw Absa Capital lead in Exotic Equity Options and South African Equity Index Options.
