2 Wall Street banks dominated dealmaking in 2015

There were two clear winners on Wall Street in last year’s deal-making bonanza.

JPMorgan ranked as the top investment bank globally by fees for 2015, according to data provider Dealogic, with Goldman Sachs a close second.

JPMorgan made $6 billion in fees for work on equity and debt deals, mergers and acquisitions, and syndicated loans, according to the data. Goldman raked in more than $5.1 billion.

No other Wall Street bank cracked the $5 billion mark for investment-banking revenue. Bank of America Merrill Lynch placed third behind Goldman, followed by Morgan Stanley.

The two banks dominated across regions and business lines.

JPMorgan ranked top in fees in equity-capital markets, debt-capital markets, and syndicated lending, according to Dealogic data. Goldman made the most in M&A banking, according to the data. In that category, JPMorgan came in second.

The two banks also took the top two spots in the regional rankings, placing first and second by fees in the US, and in Europe. Goldman Sachs also ranked fifth in Asia Pacific.

Here’s an in-depth look at the investment-banking rankings via Dealogic:
