Overview

For the second year in a row, Brazilian banks dominated Institutional Investor’s annual ranking of Latin America’s Top Corporate Access Providers.

São Paulo-based BTG Pactual once again ranked first among money managers and corporates alike, while neighbor and rival Itaú BBA held onto its second place position with both groups.

Nearly 700 investors from almost 400 firms voted on behalf of the buy side, while 180 respondents represented corporate points of view.

Voters rated banks across six attributes: facilitating one-on-one meetings with executives, arranging site visits and factory tours, hosting investor conferences, organizing non-deal roadshows, providing well-communicated and executed logistics, and coordinating in-depth and quality feedback between corporates and investors.
