BNP Paribas Exane named #1 Industry Research Provider for Europe

The recognition by Institutional Investor demonstrates BNP Paribas Exane's strong reputation as a leading provider of high quality equity research

The 2023 European Institutional Investor Research (II Research) survey has named BNP Paribas Exane as the #1 Industry Research Provider for Developed Europe, for the seventh year running, as well as joint #1 in the Overall Research category.

The longevity and consistency of this recognition from leading global equity investors shows that the franchise is synonymous with high quality research. This year, BNP Paribas Exane was ranked in all of the 34 available industry categories (up from 33 in 2022) and continued to standout in a number of areas including:

  • #1 for individually ranked Analysts
  • #1 Specialist Sales
  • #1 Sales
  • #2 Corporate Access

We’re delighted to be ranked #1 Industry Research Provider for the seventh year running. Our sincere thanks go to our clients who voted for us to win in this year’s survey.

Receiving this recognition, especially as we enter the final stages of the integration with BNP Paribas, is a clear reflection of a full year of hard work by our teams and of our ongoing dedication to our clients. It’s also testament to the quality of our Cash Equities franchise, as well as the continued strength and success of our core European Research business.

The highly competitive annual survey is based on feedback from the buy-side, so the rankings demonstrate the strength of BNP Paribas Exane’s client relationships and the consistent performance of this business, not only over the past seven years, but also through this period of transition as the business enters the latter stages of its integration with BNP Paribas.
