Barclays Equity-Linked Strategists Keep Top Rating a Second Year

October 11, 2011

Oct. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Barclays Plc won the top rating among equity-linked strategists in Institutional Investor magazine’s annual survey, beating teams from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp.

Evren Ergin and Venu Krishna won the top ranking for a second year in the category for equity derivatives and convertible bonds, according to Institutional Investor’s annual survey of fund managers. The team led by Marko Kolanovic, JPMorgan’s global head of equity derivatives strategy, was in second place for a second year, while Bank of America’s group run by Benjamin Bowler and Tatyana Hube was third.

The equity-linked securities category was created last year, when Institutional Investor combined the equity derivatives and convertible bonds groups.
