TIM Announces Winners of Top Performer Awards 2017 – North America

26th October 2017
  • Credit Suisse leads trade idea performance for bulge brackets in North America.
  • Stifel Nicolaus tops the rankings for the mid-tier and boutiques category.
  • Victor Cortes Diez at Morgan Stanley & Co and Thomas Hadley at Wunderlich were the top performing salespeople in the bulge and mid-tier categories, respectively, out of 206 eligible authors.

New York, 26 October 2017 – TIM, operator of the leading global trade ideas network and alpha capture platform, has announced the 2017 North America results of its annual Top Performer Awards, with Credit Suisse leading the bulge-bracket firms.

As well as the bulge bracket, the awards also recognise the leading mid-tier and boutique firms, with Stifel Nicolaus coming out on top, followed by Scotia Capital Inc and Northcoast Research in second and third place respectively. Individual sell-side contributors are also recognised in the awards.

TIM Group’s Top Performer Awards, now in their sixth year, are a unique global ranking of equity salespeople and their firms. They recognise and quantify top performing firms and individuals – those whose trade ideas have consistently outperformed relevant indexes over the last year. The rankings quantify the value of more than 1.4 million long and short equity trading ideas sent to clients through the TIM platform.

“Our Top Performer Awards are an opportunity to celebrate excellence within the TIM network.  We recognise our sell-side contributors’ best performance, whilst reminding the industry of the inherent value of data that comes from our network of trade ideas,” comments Rich Koppel, CEO, TIM. “Congratulations to all of our 2017 awards winners across North America.”

The Top Performer results are based on TIM Group’s analysis of more than 1.4 million equity recommendations that were distributed through its trade ideas platform to hedge funds and traditional investment management firms in 2016. Rankings are based on a number of factors, with an emphasis on consistency – looking at overall performance against total number of ideas – rather than one or two exceptional ideas.

A full list of winners, performance figures, and methodology, including the Europe, Asia (ex Japan), Japan and Australia and New Zealand regional Top Performer Awards results, can be found on TIM’s website:
