UBS Securities Ltd leads performance in ANZ

24th June 2016

London, 24 June 2016 – TIM Group, operator of the leading global trade ideas network and alpha capture platform, has announced the 2016 Australia and New Zealand results of its annual Top Performer Awards, with UBS Securities Ltd. leading the bulge-bracket firms.

As well as the bulge bracket, the awards also recognise the leading mid-tier and boutique firms, with CLSA coming out on top for the second year running, followed by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Morgans 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 fifth 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 the almost 1 million long and short equity trading ideas sent to clients through the TIM Ideas platform.

“The performance of the ideas provided by our sell-side contributors is what underpins the value of our TIM Ideas platform. Recognising our leading contributors allows us to demonstrate that and celebrate with those firms and individuals who deliver the ideas and with our network of investors who benefit,” comments Rich Koppel, CEO, TIM Group. “Congratulations to all of our 2016 awards winners across Australia and New Zealand.”

The Top Performer results are based on TIM Group’s analysis of almost 1 million equity recommendations that were distributed through its trade ideas platform to hedge funds and traditional investment management firms in 2015. 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 European, North American and Asian regional Top Performer Awards results, can be found on TIM Group’s website:
