Deutsche Rules EMEA Research, Sales and Trading, Institutional Investor Surveys Find

Citi Rockets From No. 10 to Share Second Place With BAML

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - Deutsche Bank leads the lineup in Institutional Investor's Emerging-Markets Equity & Fixed-Income Research Team for a second year running -- and claims the top spots on both the Emerging-Markets Sales Team and the Emerging-Markets Trading Team.

Complete survey results can be found at

The sales and trading rankings -- new this year -- are based on responses from research-team survey participants who were asked which firms field the best sales forces in the region and to rank the brokerages they use on the quality of trading services provided, respectively.

In the research portion of the survey, Deutsche wins 19 positions, one fewer than in 2011. However, its number of teams considered the best in their respective sectors is down much more dramatically, from nine to four.

Two firms tie for second place in research: Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which repeats in that spot, and Citi, which rockets from tenth place. Each firm claims 17 positions. That's a loss of one for BofA Merrill and a surge of 14 for Citi -- including seven teams at No. 1. Last year Citi had no top-ranked teams.

Citi also captures second place in sales and in trading services. Morgan Stanley ranks third in sales; BofA Merrill, third in trading.

Institutional Investor's 2012 Emerging-Markets Equity & Fixed-Income Research Team reflects the opinions of 600 buy-side analysts and money managers at some 390 institutions that collectively manage $350 billion in emerging-markets equity assets and $126 billion in emerging-markets fixed-income assets. Roughly 80 percent of those buy-siders responded to our question about best sales teams, and 57 percent answered the trading-services question.
