Top rankings for CA IB research

  • Best equity research in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic
  • Top position also in equity sales

CA IB International Markets, which specialises in Emerging Europe, once more received impressive confirmation of its leading position. According to a survey among fund managers, which appeared in the March issue of Institutional Investor magazine, CA IB is the leading research provider in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Global players such as Smith Barney, UBS and ING were ranked behind CA IB.

“We lead the rankings in all our core markets. I am proud that the work of our experienced analysts, combined with the long-term commitment of our firm to this part of Europe, is highly appreciated by the market”, said Peter Szopo, Board Member of CA IB International Markets and Head of Equity Research of Bank Austria Creditanstalt Group. In June last year, CA IB had been ranked first in the industry’s most important European research ranking, namely Thomson-Extel, in the CEE category.

On top of that, CA IB also achieved a strong improvement in the equity sales rankings published by Institutional Investor, leaping from rank 10 to rank 4 this year. This achievement is even more remarkable as the company's competitors, unlike CA IB, also offer services for Israel and South Africa.

CA IB International Markets, based in London, is a 100% subsidiary of Bank Austria Creditanstalt. CA IB manages Bank Austria Creditanstalt Group’s equity brokerage business in Central and Eastern Europe.
