Bank of America Merrill Lynch Leads Year-to-Date Tally


J.P. Morgan is the No. 2 firm; Deutsche Bank a distant third.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has claimed the title of Institutional Investor’s Top Global Research Firm of the Year every year since that roster was introduced, in 2011, and the brokerage starts out atop the first installment of this year’s Global Research Leaders: Year to Date lineup. It has amassed a total of 55 positions across the three rankings published thus far this year — the All-Europe Research Team, the All-Europe Fixed-Income Research Team and the All-Japan Research Team.

Similarly, J.P. Morgan, which has claimed the No. 2 spot on the Top Global Research Firm of the Year list in each of the past five years, captures second place on the inaugural 2016 roster, with an aggregated total of 51 — well ahead of Deutsche Bank, with 43. Barclays and Morgan Stanley round out the top five, with 35 and 34 positions, respectively.

A total of 50 firms are represented in the results of these three surveys. Click on Global Research Leaders: Year to Date in the navigation table at right to view the full list.

Nearly half of the institutions ranked — 23 of the 50 — have delivered at least one sector-topping performance. BofA Merrill lays claim to the most first-place finishes, with 15, while Deutsche Bank has 11. The remaining firms have nine or fewer category victories.

Our Global Research Leaders: Year to Date ranking will be updated on May 10, when the results of the 2016 All-Asia Research Team are announced.
