Overview

Investors and corporations have voted BTG Pactual as Latin America’s top corporate access provider in 2017.

The firm earned first place among both groups in Institutional Investor’s newly redesigned survey, which included a new ranking representing the corporate point-of-view in addition to the annual ranking by money managers.

Itaú BBA carved out a second-place spot on both lists, earning 11 team positions in the buy-side ranking to tie with last year’s champion JPMorgan Chase & Co. On the corporate survey, JPMorgan came in fourth, behind third-place Bank of America Corp.

The corporate point-of-view came from 176 responses in II’s 2017 Latin America Executive Team Survey. For the buy-side rating, II received responses from 662 investors at 353 firms representing $229 billion in Latin American equities. The investors provided their viewpoint in II’s 2017 Latin America Research Team survey.

Both sets of respondents rated corporate access providers based on four attributes: meetings between executives and investors, site visits and factory tours, investor conferences, and non-deal road shows.
