JPMorgan Chase & Co. has surged to the top of European investors’ ranking of the continent’s leading corporate access providers.
The bank jumped from No. 4 to the pinnacle spot, pushing UBS down to second place. More than 700 investors from 457 firms voted to represent the buy-side view. When their responses were weighted by commissions, Bank of America Merrill Lynch took first and JPMorgan placed second.
From the corporate perspective, Kepler Cheuvreux was once again the top provider. Exane BNP Paribas placed second among the 336 corporate respondents, up from No. 5 last year.
Voters were asked to rate corporate access providers based on criteria such as one-on-one meetings, non-deal road shows, and site tours.
