RBC Capital Markets Tops Rising Stars Roster
For a second year in a row, RBC Capital Markets is home to the most analysts who earn a place on the Rising Stars of Wall Street Research roster, with 11 in total and up from 9 last year. Citi and Goldman, Sachs & Co. tie for second place with 10 positions, up from 2 and 1, respectively. Their ascension bumps Credit Suisse, which ranked second last year, down two rungs — tying with J.P. Morgan in fourth place — even though they won two more positions than last year for a total of 9.
Each year when Institutional Investor asks investors to tell us which equity analysts deserve to be tapped for the All-America Research Team, we also ask them to identify the up-and-comers — analysts who have been publishing research for less than three years in any region — who seem destined for greater glory. We tabulate the votes and declare these analysts the Rising Stars of Wall Street Research. Respondents may name only one person per sector; to qualify, analysts must meet a minimum vote count and cannot have placed previously on any research team. We received Rising Stars responses from 929 voters at 469 firms. Firms that responded to the Rising Stars question manage some $7.36 trillion in U.S. equities.

The Rising Stars are not ranked; rather, they are listed alphabetically by sector, as all analysts who meet the eligibility requirements are awarded the designation. See Methodology for more information.
A total of 121 individuals make the cut this year, compared with 50 in 2015.
