Deutsche Bank Research has won StarMine’s top Research House award for both Hong Kong & China and the Asia ex-Japan region overall, winning a total of 22 analyst awards. This is the first time Deutsche Bank has ranked No. 1 across both regions, and it is also the first bank to ever achieve this feat. Last year Deutsche Bank Research had 16 analyst awards across the two surveys.
Joe Liew, Head of Equity Research, APAC, said: “Ranking first across Asia, Hong Kong and China is an amazing achievement and I am very proud of our accomplishment. It is testament to the calibre of analysts we have in the equity research department across the region, who work tirelessly to analyse latest developments in their stocks and sectors.
“I am excited and optimistic about 2019 given the quadrupling of weight given to China A shares in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. With a dedicated and experienced research team, we are well placed to continue providing differentiated, thought leading research to our clients.”
