In June, when the results of the sixth of Institutional Investors 12 annual research team surveys were published, a difference of only one position separated first-place Bank of America Merrill Lynch and second-place Deutsche Bank on our Global Research Leaders: Year-to-Date tally. With publication of the results of this years Latin America Research Team survey, BofA Merrill substantially widens its lead, to 19 spots.
The U.S. bank now has 138 total team positions; its German counterpart, 119. (These firms win 23 and five spots, respectively, on the 2013 Latin America Research Team.) Morgan Stanley holds steady in third place overall, with 101. These are the only firms to have amassed triple-digit team-position totals thus far this year.
BofA Merrill is also the reigning champ with regard to analysts and teams deemed the best in their respective sectors. It wins 36 first-place positions to Deutsche Banks 26. UBS captures third place when firms are measured by this metric. The Swiss bank, which is in fifth place overall (with 77 positions), has amassed 15 sector-topping appearances.
This table will be updated tomorrow, when the results of the 2013 All-Brazil Research Team are announced.
