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.”
