Fund managers' top 10 research providers

With quality of research important in a post-Mifid world, a study by independent evaluators Extel highlights the providers the buy-side favour.

A survey by independent evaluators Extel reveals fund managers' favourite research providers. 

The survey, now in its 45th year, received votes from 2,600 fund managers worldwide and ran over six weeks between 14 March and 27 April 2018.

Extel aggregated scores for quality of country, macro and equity research to come up with an overall ranking for each research provider.  

David Enticknap, managing director and head of Extel, underlined how important research had become following the introduction of Mifid. 

'Mifid II has increased transparency between sell-side firms and their buy-side clients; but pressure to increase performance and reduce budgets makes identifying excellence more valuable than ever before,' Enticknap said. 

'These trends, coupled with improvements made to our service, have driven increased demand for a different approach to understanding what clients really value.'
