Each year II invites participants in the broader All-Asia Research Team survey to name up to four firms that they feel provide the best sales support. We received responses from more than 3,180 buy-side analysts and money managers at 1,025 firms that collectively manage some $1.6 trillion in Asia ex-Japan equity assets. Roughly 85 percent of the people who cast votes in the research team survey, representing 93 percent of the participating buy-side institutions, answered our question about the best sales teams.
