II asked participants in the broader Latin America Research Team survey to tell us which firms have the best sales teams serving clients that invest in the region and to rank the brokerages they use on the quality of trading services offered. Responses to the latter question were tabulated to produce our first Latin America Trading Team.

Our question about top sales teams generated responses from more than 600 buy-side analysts and money managers at some 340 institutions that collectively manage an estimated $355.5 billion in Latin American equities. Roughly 76 percent of the people who cast votes in the research team survey, representing 86 percent of the participating buy-side institutions, weighed in with their opinions.
