UBS named top global equity research firm for 2017

 

By Rose de la Cruz

 

Swiss-based UBS has been named the institutional investor’s top global equity research firm for 2017 based on a survey done among buy-side analysts and portfolio managers. In 2013 it was in the seventh spot.

 

The ranking stemmed from votes by clients about their preferred research analysts and teams in each region which collectively resulted in UBS holding 162 leading positions across the world, ahead of more than 270 other sell-side firms competing in the polls.

 

"We'd like to thank all of our clients who voted for us and provided honest feedback on how we can continue to improve our research offering," said Juan-Luis Perez, Global Head of Research at UBS. "While others cut back, we've continued to invest in Research and are glad that clients have reflected this in their votes this year. The results of the Institutional Investor survey underline the progress that we continue to make and the strength of UBS's Global Equity Research franchise, our analysts and differentiated research platform."

 

"We are proud of our analysts, and we are also very pleased with our clients' positive response to the UBS method for question-driven, evidence-based research," said Barry Hurewitz, Global COO of Research at UBS.

 

"Having the best analysts in the industry is key because they are in the best position to identify the research questions that matter the most to investors." Thousands of reports by UBS Research analysts now are supported by their work with primary research experts from UBS Evidence Lab.

 

Together, they refine investor questions into testable propositions and apply whatever primary research method may be required: quantitative market research, digital footprint analysis, geo-spatial analysis or data science.

 

"While market, competitive and regulatory challenges will likely continue, we are confident that our differentiated product and talent will drive further momentum into 2018 and beyond," added Hurewitz.
