Eduardo Francisco, BDO Capital & Investment Corp

For investors and corporations, there was no avoiding BDO Capital over the last 18 months. Name any significant deal or transaction in the Philippines, and odds are the wholly owned subsidiary of BDO Unibank was involved.

Part of BDO Capital’s progress in becoming the go-to institution for the Philippines’ biggest conglomerates is that it’s part of the sprawling SM Group of companies. Within the SM universe alone, there is plenty of demand for the bank’s many services: securities underwriting and trading, loan syndication, financial advisory, private placement of debt and equity, project finance and direct equity investments.

Beyond it, BDO Capital’s legacy is one of large numbers. Since 2000, it has participated in at least $180.5 billion of equity and debt issues. Despite pandemic-related disruptions, 2020 was a busy year in the capital markets, with initial public offerings, government and corporate bond issues, preferred share sales, term loans and project finance deals – and BDO Capital, led by president Eduardo Francisco, had leading roles in many of them.
