Deutsche Bank returns at No. 2 with 15 positions. J.P. Morgan advances one rung to share third place with Morgan Stanley, which holds steady in that spot. These firms capture 13 positions apiece -- that's an increase of three for the former and two for the latter. UBS vaults from No. 8 to No. 5 after nearly doubling its team total, from five to nine.

Fifteen firms are represented on this year's roster.

BofA Merrill also leads the lineup when firms are ranked by number of sector-topping appearances. It lays claim to eight first-place finishes, but that is down sharply from last year, when 15 of its crews earned the No. 1 spot.

Deutsche Bank comes in second when firms are measured by this metric; its analysts lead six rosters. Morgan Stanley is home to two category champions; while EFG-Hermes, J.P. Morgan, Renaissance Capital and Sberbank CIB capture one position each.
