At a sold-out gala in Toronto, three banks took the top honours as Canadian Dealmakers of the year.
The capital markets arm of Royal Bank of Canada won top Canadian investment bank after having dominated the rankings for deals in 2013, while in the mid-market category, National Bank Financial and GMP Securities tied for the prize.
