Thomson Reuters Announces 2011 Extel Survey Results

 

London, 8 June 2011 - Thomson Reuters today announced the results of the 38th annual Thomson Reuters Extel Survey at a lunchtime ceremony in London's Guildhall. Considered the leading benchmark for excellence in investment banking and asset management, the pan-European survey highlights achievement across the buyside, sellside and corporate communities.

 

The 2011 Thomson Reuters Extel Survey captured deeper, more analytical data from all the key market practitioners than ever before. Voting was conducted primarily online and ran from 7 March to 6 May 2011. It reflects the contribution of over 2,250 buyside firms, 2,500 analysts from 240 brokerage firms/research houses and nearly 750 of Europe's largest quoted companies worldwide. All data, votes received and methodology applied were independently checked and verified by Deloitte.

 

Highlights of the key winners from the 2011 Survey are:

 

  • Leading Pan-European Brokerage Firm for Equity and Equity-Linked Research: UBS 

     

  • Leading Pan-European Fund Management Firm:  JP Morgan Asset Management 

     

  • Leading Pan-European Individual Equity Analyst: Andrew Wood, Sanford C. Bernstein 

     

  • Leading Pan-European Sector Team (across all categories): Bank of America Securities - Merrill Lynch, Chemicals 

     

  • Leading Pan-European Hedge Fund: Och-Ziff Capital 

     

  • Leading Pan-European Company for IR: BASF SE 

 

The 2011 Thomson Reuters Extel Survey identified a number of industry trends, which include:

 

  • Corporate Access services and advice is more highly valued by asset managers than ever before. 

 

  • The buyside puts independent thinking as the most prized attribute they look for from the sellside. 

 

  • Fund managers place a great reliance on CEO/CFO meetings to better evaluate companies and want those meetings to take place at the buysides' offices.  

 

  • 84% of companies in Europe do not currently use social media in their investor relations programs but 34% believe it will become increasingly influential. 

 

"Every year we see participation in Extel increase as measuring the value and impact of the interaction across all three sides of the investment community becomes more and more important.  The increase in data - up over 20% this year alone - reflects the competitive industry environment in which companies seek investment dollars, brokers chase commission fees and the buyside compelling investment ideas. Extel will continue to identify excellence in every aspect here and congratulates all of this year's winners," commented Steve Kelly, Managing Director, Extel with Thomson Reuters.

 

Today's Thomson Reuters Extel award ceremony was hosted by Lord Michael Grade in London's Guildhall and drew nearly 450 members of the European financial community. Presenters included David Buik, Partner, BGC Partners; Luke Johnson, Chairman of Risk Capital Partners; Julie Meyer, CEO of Ariadne Capital and Ian King, Business and City Editor, The Times.

 

The Thomson Reuters Extel Survey bestows over 400 awards covering equity sectors, economics and strategy, equity derivatives, and emerging markets categories. The role of insightful analysts and strategists, especially those who more closely identified upcoming market turbulence, is ever more highly prized.
