Boosted by last year’s acquisition of Troika Dialog, Sberbank CIB debuts atop Institutional Investor’s second annual All-Russia Trading Team. (Troika claimed the No. 2 spot in 2012.) VTB Capital drops down to second place, while Deutsche Bank holds steady in third. Rounding out the top five are Morgan Stanley, which climbs two levels to No. 4, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which leaps from eighth place to fifth.

Sberbank also advances in II’s related surveys, capturing the top spot on both the All-Russia Research Team and All-Russia Sales Team.

We invited participants in the All-Russia Research Team survey to name up to four firms that they feel provide the best trading services to those that invest in Russian stocks. We received responses from 206 investment professionals at more than 160 buy-side firms that collectively manage an estimated $65 billion in Russian equity assets. Roughly 52 percent of the people who cast votes in the research team survey, representing 59 percent of the participating buy-side institutions, answered our question about trading services.
