Citi Boasts Most Rising Stars in Equity Research

Fifteen Citigroup equity analysts – the most of any firm – were named analysts to watch in Institutional Investor’s annual ranking of the Rising Stars of Wall Street Research.

The firm placed first in this year’s ranking, dethroning former leader RBC Capital, which came in third.

Each year, Institutional Investor asks voters in the broader All-America Research Team survey to identify the up-and-comers – analysts who have been publishing research for less than three years in any region – who seem destined for greater glory. The result is the Rising Stars.

This year’s ranking was based on responses received from 1,084 voters at 536 firms.
