Deutsche Bank scores hat-trick in Institutional Investor’s Emerging EMEA Research, Sales and Trading survey

Deutsche Bank announced today it has secured the top position across all categories in the 2012 Institutional Investor Emerging EMEA Research, Sales and Trading survey. Deutsche Bank leads the Emerging-Markets Equity & Fixed-Income Research Team survey for the second consecutive year, and also leads the inaugural Emerging-Markets Sales Team and Emerging-Markets Trade Team surveys.

Institutional Investor said: “This marks the second time this year that Deutsche Bank wins the top spot in three rankings drawn from a single regional survey; the firm also ranks first on the All-Europe research, sales and trading teams. In fact, Deutsche Bank is the only firm to reign supreme in all rankings from a regional survey.”

David Folkerts-Landau, Global Head of Research at Deutsche Bank, said: “Market-leading research is a key differentiator between firms, and it is a particularly valuable one during periods of heightened economic and market instability such as we are seeing now. To be in the #1 slot for Research in both the European and Emerging Markets poll, and now for a second consecutive year, is very pleasing."

Max Koep, CEEMA Head of Equities at Deutsche Bank, said: “This represents independent approval of the quality of our emerging market sales and trading capabilities. Client satisfaction is the strongest endorsement, and we continue to grow our franchise to support an increasingly diverse range of client requirements.”

Deutsche Bank won 19 positions in the research survey, with four teams in first place, eight teams in second place and two in third place.

The four top ranked research teams were:

  • Consumer/discretionary
  • Real Estate
  • Telecommunications
  • Utilities

Deutsche Bank has a leading global research platform with equity analysts present in more than 30 countries and four-fifths of stocks covered by analysts in their home markets, more than any other bulge-bracket firm.

The 2012 Emerging-Markets Equity & Fixed-Income Research Team reflects the opinions of 600 buy-side analysts and money managers at some 390 institutions that collectively manage $350 billion in emerging-markets equity assets and $126 billion in emerging-markets fixed-income assets .

The sales and trading rankings were based on responses from research team survey participants who were asked which firms field the best sales forces in the region, and for their ranking of the brokerages they use on the quality of trading services provided.
