NEW YORK Previously unranked Sberbank CIB takes top honors on the 2013 All-Russia Research Team, Institutional Investors annual ranking of the countrys best sell-side analysts as determined by the worlds leading money managers.Complete survey results can be found at www.institutionalinvestor.com. The firm, which was created following Sberbank of Russias January 2012 acquisition of Troika Dialog, captures 13 total team positions one more than the latter claimed last year, when it finished in second place.
Down one notch to No. 2 is VTB Capital, with 12 slots, two fewer than in 2012. Deutsche Bank holds steady in third place despite increasing its team total by three, to ten; while Bank of America Merrill Lynch catapults from No. 10 to No. 4 after picking up four spots, for a total of five. Survey results reflect the opinions of 395 investment professionals at some 275 buy-side firms that oversee an estimated $209 billion in Russian assets.
This year marks the surveys tenth anniversary. Only three analysts have made the team every year: Sberbanks Evgeny Gavrilenkov, on top for a sixth consecutive year in Economics, and Alexander Kudrin, who advances from second place to claim his first appearance in the winners circle in Fixed-Income Strategy; and Renaissance Capitals Alexander Kazbegi, a runner-up in Telecommunications. Kudrin has amassed 13 appearances to date, having ranked in both External (Foreign CurrencyDenominated) Debt and Internal (Ruble-Denominated) Debt before those sectors were merged in 2007.
The individual who has ranked most often is no longer an analyst. Alexey Moisseev racked up 15 appearances including eight first-place finishes in Economics, Fixed-Income Strategy and predecessor sectors on behalf of RenCap and VTB Capital. He left the latter firm last summer after being named deputy finance minister for the Russian Federation.
