UBS Securities Ltd leads performance in Asia

26th May 2016

UBS Securities Ltd leads trade idea performance in Asia, coming top of TIM Group’s annual Top Performer Awards in Japanese and Asian regional rankings

London, 26th May 2016 – TIM Group, operator of the leading global trade ideas network and alpha capture platform, has announced the 2016 results of its annual Top Performer Awards for Asia (ex. Japan) and Japan, with UBS Securities Ltd. leading the bulge-bracket firms in both regional awards.

As well as the bulge bracket, the awards also recognise the leading mid-tier and boutique firms, with Daishin Securities coming out on top in Asia (ex. Japan) and Ichiyoshi Securities leading the category in Japan. Individual sell-side contributors are also recognised in the awards.

Now in their fifth year, TIM Group’s Top Performer Awards are a unique 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 platform. Recognising our leading contributors allows us to demonstrate that value and celebrate with those firms who deliver the ideas and with our network of investors who benefit,” comments Rich Koppel, CEO, TIM Group. “Congratulations to all of our best performing firms and individual contributors this year across the Asian region.”

The 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 and North American Top Performer Awards results, can be found on TIM Group’s website:

The full results for both regions, Asia (ex. Japan) and Japan, were first published exclusively on Institutional Investor earlier this month.
