The Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards

Investec’s analysts have continued to produce outstanding research, and that’s reflected in this year’s Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards

Eight of our analysts were in the top three in their respective categories, and three won their categories outright.

The Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards recognise the world’s top sell-side analysts and firms, measuring performance based on empirical data: actual performance of the stocks they recommend, and the accuracy of their earnings predictions.

Investec’s Harold Hutchinson commented:

“I was particularly pleased to see that our featured analysts include long-standing Investec stalwarts, a number of more recent recruits and some younger homegrown talent.”

Now is a good time to consider what makes these awards important. “In a post-Mifid world, where analysts are under more pressure than ever before to show that their work is worth paying for, these awards demonstrate that good analysts can consistently outperform, adding a great deal of value to the firms that use our research.”
