Deutsche Bank was ranked No 1 for the first time on Institutional Investor’s 2011 All-Europe Research Team, the magazine’s 26th annual ranking of the region’s best sell-side equity research analysts.
The magazine surveyed more than 1,900 money managers and investment officers at about 700 institutions, managing an estimated $5.6 trillion in European equities.
Deutsche Bank won 37 positions in the survey, 20 more than last year. It had six teams in first place, up from two, and five in second place, also up from two.
Institutional Investor said in their press release: “As fears of sovereign-debt default have spread across Europe and sent markets reeling, anxious investors demand up-to-the-minute information on the unfolding crises. The analysts who do the best job of meeting those demands can be found at Deutsche Bank, which catapults from sixth place last year to finish in first place for the first time on the All-Europe Research Team.”
In addition, Deutsche Bank was placed second on Institutional Investor’s 2011 All-Europe Fixed-Income Research Team announced last week. The bank had five teams ranked in first position: General Strategy, Economics, Interest Rate Strategy, Investment Grade Strategy and High Yield Basic Materials. It came second in High Yield TMT.
