Deutsche Bank completes clean sweep in Institutional Investor’s annual surveys with All-Europe Sales and Trading Team wins

Deutsche Bank today announced it has secured the top position across all categories in the 2012 Institutional Investor benchmark surveys of Europe’s leading sales, trading and research providers. Deutsche Bank achieved the No. 1 placed ranking in the inaugural All-Europe Trading Team and All-Europe Sales Team surveys, and the annual All-Europe Research Team survey announced earlier this week.

More than 800 investment professionals at 490 firms managing around $3.9 trillion in European equity assets responded to the All-Europe Trading Team survey. Deutsche Bank was ranked first for the performance of its research products, sensible risk pricing and attentive service.  

Almost 1,500 buy-side analysts and money managers at nearly 650 firms managing $5 trillion in European equity assets responded to the All-Europe Sales Team survey. Praise for Deutsche Bank’s client focus, the performance and knowledge of its sales teams and its collaborative approach to research all contributed to Deutsche Bank claiming the top spot.

Deutsche Bank was also ranked in first place for the second consecutive year in Institutional Investor’s All-Europe Research Team survey. Deutsche Bank achieved 17 No. 1 positions, a record in the history of the current survey.

Garth Ritchie, Global Head of Equities at Deutsche Bank said: “Deutsche Bank is committed to becoming the No. 1 European equities franchise and there is no endorsement stronger than that of our clients.”

Kerim Derhalli, Global Head of Equity Trading at Deutsche Bank said: “Achieving the top position in the All-Europe Trading Team survey is a strong endorsement and independent recognition of our commitment to providing execution excellence. Investor interest in European equities is rising strongly on the back of a rally since late November, and these results illustrate how well positioned we are to meet our clients’ needs.”

Rick Saunders, Head of European Equity Research Sales at Deutsche Bank said: “The stability of the sales team and the breadth of specialisation that we enjoy across sectors and countries has allowed us to make the most of the insights that our company and macro research offer to clients. We are very pleased that this has been recognised through the number one position in the inaugural All-Europe Sales Team survey.”
