May 24th, 2012 by TopGun Press

69 Europe Based Investment Professionals and 17 Investment Teams Awarded TopGun Status

NEW YORK, NY, May 24, 2012 (TopGun Press) – Brendan Wood, today culminated its search for the Europe based TopGun Investment Minds and Teams. TopGuns were selected by their counterparties namely, BWI’s Panel of the leading sell-side analysts and sales professionals. BWI’s “Investment Mind” Selection Panel comprises more than 700 of the world’s top sell-side analysts and institutional sales professionals from 137 firms, representing over 90% of institutional trading. Investment debriefings with these individuals, focused on investor confidence, take place throughout the year. In addition to their rigorous analysis of the companies they cover, the panelists respond to a series of questions about buy-side investment professionals who impress and inspire them as leaders of thought. The TopGun Investment Mind Team designations have been awarded to the firms receiving the highest number of ‘TopGun Investment Mind’ citations for the investment professionals in their employ.

The 2011/2012 European TopGun Investment Mind Teams are (in alphabetical order):

Allianz Global Investors
BNP Paribas Investment Partners
Capital Group Companies
Citadel Group
DEKA Investment GmbH
Fidelity Worldwide Investment
GLG Partners
ING Investment Management
