TopGun US Chief Investment Officers / Team Leaders + Generalist Investors 2023

New York, NY, June 14th, 2023 (TopGun Press)

The Global Sell-Side Panel of Investment Analysts, Sales Professionals, Traders and Sell-Side Management have selected their most respected TopGun investment counter parties in trade 2023, namely members of the TopGun Club. The Sell-Side Panel singles out individual investment decision makers as being exceptionally proficient investment minds. The coaches of the teams which attract the most TopGun Investment Minds are considered TopGun Team Leaders.

Nominations this year were obtained in personal interviews/debriefs with 750+ leading professionals on the sell-side. The full debriefs focus on the sell-side view of global investment targets and also the portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and buy-side traders who most adroitly put them through their paces on these names. Collectively, the nominating Panel represents the majority of banks and broker dealers who deal with US TopGun investors. The objective selection process strictly limits the number of nominations a respondent can make and filters selections based upon the performance of funds managed by nominated investors.

The vital working tools of a TopGun investor include brainpower, wisdom and intestinal fortitude. However, the list of requisite personal qualities and professional skills doesn’t stop there. Today’s TopGun investor is under scrutiny for performance short and longer term, little respite for even a well based value investment style to manifest itself over time. Assets move from fund to fund with increasing frequency by a more self-informed and demanding clientele. The TopGun investor often needs to balance investment style and exercise flexibility in order to maintain out-performance. There are few professions that demand the frequency of decision making challenges, as does equity portfolio management. TopGuns may be sector specialized or generalists, but in either case they need an informed world view on the many variables which define opportunity and risk. There are many checks and balances at work in the mind of a TopGun investor. A strong personality is required to redact to the facts and execute fearlessly.
