Financial Mail’s Ranking the Analysts Awards 2022

Posted in: Press Releases, Reports on Jun 2, 2022

Standard Bank SBG Securities’ dominance of the Ranking the Analyst survey has come to an end after six consecutive years at the top. RMB Morgan Stanley is this year’s top-ranked research firm with Standard Bank SBG in second place and JP Morgan in third.

The Financial Mail’s 2022 Ranking the Analyst Awards were held on 31 May in a hybrid online/in person ceremony hosted by Arena Events with renowned comedian Loyiso Madinga as MC.

This survey  is believed to be the longest-running survey of its kind globally. The Financial Mail has been publishing the rankings of SA’s sell-side analysts since 1977 and Intellidex has been conducting the research for them since 2014. The awards recognise excellence in research, shining an important light onto the institutional stockbroking sector in South Africa.

Noah Capital is the Small Black Broker of the Year for the third consecutive year while Absa CIB’s Samantha Naicker is the Young Analyst of the Year.

RMB, the investment banking arm of FirstRand, joined forces with the internationally powerful Morgan Stanley in 2006 and has been consistently highly rated in these awards that recognise excellence in South Africa’s sell-side analysts.
