Davy Research has been voted the No 1 Equity Research Team in Ireland in the Institutional Investor All-Europe Research Team 2013 survey.

The 28th annual All-Europe Research Team results reflect the opinions of some 2,150 money managers at more than 760 institutions managing an estimated $5.6trn in European equities, or around 83pc of the MSCI Europe index's market cap of $6.8trn at the time of polling.

Barry Dixon and team at Davy Research was in first place in the 'Countries – Ireland' category. It is five straight years at No 1 for the Davy Research team, which has expanded its coverage beyond Ireland – mostly within Europe – to follow 110 companies, up from 95 a year ago.

"Irish corporates have become much more international," said Barry Dixon, head of research at Davy.

"They now compare themselves to their international peers, and they expect us to do likewise.

"We are delighted to receive this award. The annual Institutional Investor survey polls widely across Europe's largest institutional investors, which makes it an important benchmark for the investment community."
