CLSA captures 15 total team positions, half again as many as the two firms that tie for second place: Credit Suisse and Kotak Securities. BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research comes in a close fourth, with nine positions, followed by Morgan Stanley, with eight.

Kotak Securities, a division of the Kotak Mahindra Group, is the only local brokerage in the top five, although other India-based firms -- including Anand Rathi Financial Services, Enam Securities, IDFC Securities and Motilal Oswal Securities -- feature in the overall results.
