JPMorgan Chase & Co. has taken an early lead in the race to become 2020’s Top Global Research Firm.

The bank has so far accumulated 34 team positions across Institutional Investor’s research team surveys — the most of any research provider. It’s a strong start for JPMorgan, which finished last year as the No. 2 research provider globally.

But with five regional surveys and the Global Fixed-Income Research Team ranking still to come, this race is still wide open.

Current tallies are based on each company’s combined results in the All-Japan Research Team and Latin America Research Team. The final results, to be announced at the end of this year, will also include team positions from the following rankings: the All-America Research Team; the All-Asia Research Team; the All-China Research Team; the All-Europe Research Team; the Emerging Europe, Middle East & Africa Research Team; and the Global Fixed-Income Research Team.
