Financial Mail Top Analysts Awards
This 6th successive first-place triumph in the #FMTopAnalyst Awards in 2021 is thrilling and, at the same time, daunting.
Never before in the 45-year history of the survey has a research house mustered this feat. We’re thankful to our clients for the enduring recognition. Congratulations to our research team who have consistently worked with great toil and resolve to achieve this magnificent recognition.
Standard Bank Research’s commitment to original thought, rigorous scrutiny and team collaboration helped distinguish its service relative to competitors. It perhaps also counted that many of the team’s economic and market predictions, notwithstanding unmatched pandemic-induced uncertainty, were realised.
Moreover, the breadth of the bank’s research suite, spanning politics, macroeconomics, strategy, equities and corporate credit, and the widespread sub-Saharan Africa coverage, enabled comprehensive client service. The leap into ESG and explicit climate research further underscored the unit’s pioneering approach.
