Deutsche Bank repeats in first place, this time under the leadership of Gilles Moec and Mark Wall in London. One fund manager praises the team's "global network and global view." The five-strong squad hopes that 2013 "will be less about politics and more about economic developments proper, and obviously the big question is whether or not we'll see a recovery in the euro zone," says Moec, 42. He and his associates believe the answer is yes — "a very subdued recovery" with real gross domestic growth starting to rise in the second quarter. Fiscal austerity and the lack of credit origination are still issues that have to be dealt with, although an acceleration in U.S. growth "would unlock net trade in the euro zone, and gradually you would see a recovery," he adds. Moec, who moved to Deutsche in 2009 from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, received a degree in economics at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris. Wall, 40, joined the firm in 1996 after earning a bachelor's degree in economics from Trinity College Dublin. — Carolyn Koo
