Brendan Wood, Chairman of Brendan Wood International, commented, "The TopGun portfolio managers and buy-side analysts were selected by their counterparties because they inspire and influence the investment community to deeper levels of investment wisdom. The results, according to our Panel, amplify the importance of collaboration, inspiration, hard analytical work and integrity in the critical relationship between buy-side managers and analysts and their sell-side counterparties. This quality of communication uproots essential findings which help establish shareholder confidence in organizations who deserve it and likewise expose the weaker suits of investment targets at the lower end of the Brendan Wood Shareholder Confidence Index."
