Deutsche Bank tops Institutional Investor’s annual survey for European equity research

Deutsche Bank announced today that it has been ranked No 1 for the second consecutive year on Institutional Investor’s All-Europe Research Team, the benchmark 2012 survey of the region’s best sell-side equity research analysts. Deutsche Bank achieved 17 No 1 positions, a record in the history of the current survey.

Institutional Investor said today: “Institutional Investor asked money managers which analysts are doing the best job of providing the direction they find most helpful and thus deserve to be included in the 2012 All-Europe Research Team. Deutsche Bank reigns supreme for a second straight year, with 44 total positions - seven more than in 2011 - and nearly triples its number of first-place teams, from six to 17.”

David Folkerts-Landau, Global Head of Research at Deutsche Bank, said: “These are fantastic results, and the strongest validation we could have hoped for regarding our commitment to best-in-class equity research in Europe for our clients."

The 17 No 1-ranked teams were:
  • Banks: Jason Napier, Matt Spick & team
  • Biotechnology: Holger Blum, Richard Parkes & team
  • Building & Construction: Luis Prieto & team
  • Chemicals: Timothy Jones & team
  • Economics: Thomas Mayer & team
