TRENTON, N.J., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Institutional Investor has released the results of its 2013 All Europe Fixed - Income Research Team survey. J.P. Morgan captures the top spot in the ranking for a third year running, while Barclays repeats at No. 2. Complete survey results can be found by visiting, http://bit.ly/12o7eMB.
Europe's ongoing sovereign-debt crisis has driven demand for sell-side Investment research — and helped fuel voter participation in this year's survey. Nearly 800 investment professionals from some 380 buy-side institutions cast votes; those figures are up approximately 45 percent and 27 percent, respectively, from 2012.
Each of this year's top five firms — J.P. Morgan, Barclays, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley, respectively — captures more total team positions this year than they did in 2012. Bank of America Merrill Lynch is the real standout; its team-position total more than doubled, from six to 13. This year's results also include two firms making their first appearance on the All-Europe Fixed-Income Research Team: Credit Agricole Corporate Investment Bank (tied for No. 10) and UniCredit (No. 13).
The trend toward cross-asset-class investing has accelerated in the wake of the global financial meltdown, and several analysts who appear on this team also rank on its equity counterpart, the 2013 All-Europe Research Team, whose winners were announced last week, and can be found by visiting: http://bit.ly/iimagAERT.
