Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards 2017

homson Reuters today announced the winners of the 2017 Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards for Asia. This is the thirteenth year that the awards have been presented to the top stock analysts and brokerage firms across Asia.

The Awards, based on the Thomson Reuters StarMine objective ratings of sell-side securities analysts, measure the performance of analysts based on the industry excess returns of their buy/sell recommendations and the accuracy of their earnings estimates. The 2017 awards recognise the sell-side analysts who have shown outstanding performance either as stock pickers based on the calendar year of 2016, and/or earnings estimators on the fiscal period that reported between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.

Raj Shah, the head of StarMine sell-side research awards at Thomson Reuters, said, “These coveted awards provides a prism through which sell-side analysts highlight their skill and timing of recommendation and estimates performance, and invariably the quality of their research to the discerning institutional buy-side client along the research continuum. My congratulations to all the ranked analysts on providing truly differentiated research and extracting outsized returns from their coverage.”

“We are honoured to be StarMine’s top ranked research team in Asia this year. Our ability to balance both global thought leadership and Alpha generation is critical to helping our clients succeed. This reflects the continuation of our substantial commitment to Asia research and the emphasis we place on stock recommendations and company forecasts as part of our broader research product offering. We are, therefore, delighted to receive this award as recognition of our efforts,” said Brent Robinson, Head of Pan Asia Research, at Citi.
