It is the first time an investment bank has swept the board across all categories with 1st for Sales, Trading, Corporate Broking, Corporate Access , Investment Trusts and Research, retaining our title as the top research house in the UK for the fifth year running.

Of II’s 19 sectors surveyed, Peel Hunt’s research teams have continued to be ranked highly, improving on the strong results achieved last year, with number one positions secured in ten sectors (Construction, Strategy, Financial, Healthcare, Insurance, Investment Trusts, Metals, Oil & Gas, Real Estate and Transport) and second position in a further seven (Capital Goods, Chemicals, Consumer, Energy & Utilities, Leisure, Retail and Technology).

Seven of the 10 top-ranked analysts for UK mid & small-cap companies came from Peel Hunt, with Charles Hall, Head of Research and a Consumer Goods analyst, named number one analyst for the fourth year in a row, followed by Harry Philips, a Capital Goods analyst, ranking second.
