DEUTSCHE EXCELS AT CORPORATE ACCESS IN EUROPE
Investor demand for meetings with corporate leaders is on the rise, and no firm does a better job of providing access than Deutsche Bank, money managers tell Institutional Investor. The firm wins 29 total team positions in our inaugural ranking of Europe’s Top Corporate Access Providers, followed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch in second place, with 26. Morgan Stanley and UBS, with 22 places each, share the No. 3 spot. Rounding out the top five is J.P. Morgan Cazenove, with 17.
This year, for the first time, we asked participants in the All-Europe Research Team survey to tell us which brokerages do the best job of arranging meetings between portfolio managers and C-suite executives. We received responses from nearly 950 investment professionals at more than 475 institutions that manage an estimated $3.98 trillion in European equities.
Topping the access roster is only one of four regional victories that Deutsche Bank captures this year: The firm is also No. 1 on the All-Europe Research Team (for a third year in a row) and for a second straight year leads both the All-Europe Sales and All-Europe Trading teams.
