A total of 23 firms make this year’s team (plus an additional eight that receive an honorable mention). Those that rank highest are listed in the Leaders table.

Each year II asks participants in the broader Latin America Research Team survey to tell us which firms provide the best sales support to investors in regional stocks. This year we received responses from more than 670 buy-side analysts and money managers at over 380 institutions that collectively manage an estimated $279 billion in Latin American equities. Roughly 74 percent of the people who cast votes in the research team survey, representing 84 percent of the participating buy-side institutions, answered our question about the best sales teams.
