Privately held investment company The Capital Group received the most nods in a survey ranking the best buy-side professionals in Europe.
Thirteen money managers from Capital Group were named in advisory company Brendan Wood International's "75 TopGun Buy-Side Professionals in Europe." That was followed by eight professionals named from JP Morgan Asset Management.
Brendan Wood surveys 400 sell-side analysts from 65 companies for their votes on the top buy-side advisors.
"The results amplify the importance of collaboration, inspiration and integrity in the critical relationship between portfolio managers and sell-side analysts in uprooting essential findings which help establish shareholder confidence in companies which deserve it," Chairman Brendan Wood said in a statement.
