Evercore ISI Recognized as the Top Ranked Independent Firm in U.S. Equity Research

For the eighth consecutive year, Evercore ISI was recognized as the top ranked independent research franchise in Institutional Investor’s All-America Equity Research survey. Evercore ISI was ranked #2 for analysts among all firms on a weighted basis, a measure that applies the greatest weight to the highest ranked individuals in each category.

Ed Hyman, Evercore ISI’s founder and Chairman, was awarded the #1 position in Economics, a recognition he has earned 41 times in the 50-year history of the Institutional Investor All-America Equity Research survey. In all, Evercore ISI claimed a new Firm record 43 individual positions and 40 team positions. This includes a record-matching thirteen first place positions, the second highest number of first place positions across all firms.

The 2021 All-America Research Team reflects the opinions of more than 3,500 investment professionals from almost 1,500 asset management firms and institutions, according to the magazine.

Ed Hyman said, “This year’s results are a testament to the hard work of each and every member of our team, from our analysts, to sales and trading, to support functions. This is truly a team sport. Perhaps most important, we want to thank our clients for their recognition and partnership.”

Marc Harris, Evercore ISI Director of Research, added, “The market for research continues to be extremely competitive, and this past year was no exception. Our analysts continued to prioritize the highest quality independent thinking to help our clients with their most important investment decisions.”

CEO of Evercore ISI, Mike Paliotta, said, “Ed founded our business on an unwavering commitment to high quality research. Our team is 100% focused on this founding principle and I am proud of our ability to deliver both an excellent research product and outstanding client service. Our sales and trading teams add value through their relationships and client connectivity, allowing us to deliver the highly differentiated products and service that our clients value. We are grateful to our clients for their support.”

“The outstanding results from Institutional Investor are a testament to the quality of our team, our market-leading research product and the trust our clients place in us,” said John Weinberg, Evercore’s Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer. “The intellectual capital we provide is an important element of our service to our clients.”

Ralph Schlosstein, Evercore’s Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, added, “Our investor and corporate clients continue to rely on us for valuable macro and fundamental insights. I want to thank our institutional investor clients for their ongoing support, and congratulate our team for this year’s record-breaking results.”
