Peel Hunt LLP: Best Equity Research Team UK 2021

Peel Hunt

Peel Hunt offers research, sales, investment banking advisory and capital markets services, as well as a trading platform, to provide liquidity to investors and business intelligence and interpretation to corporate clients. Peel Hunt is gunning to be recognised as the global specialist of UK investment banking — and research underpins the firm’s steady march toward its goal. Fund managers want to know how a business is running, and Peel Hunt understands all the moving parts. The research department is led by industry veterans boasting sixty decades of combined experience in financial analysis. While many competitors entrust R&D to junior analysts, Peel Hunt has positioned its research division front and centre. The team works with the investment banking and sales departments to engage with clients as one unified house, giving them a comprehensive service that has led to successful long-term relationships. Partnerships begin with collaborative interdepartmental relationships that centre around clients and other stakeholders. Peel Hunt calls this approach “joined-up broking”. The firm has built a network of links with corporate management teams across multiple industries. In anticipation of the pandemic, it hosted digital investor seminars and relied on virtual technologies to continuously conduct business and engage with clients. Peel Hunt works with 156 corporate clients and covers some 440 stocks — and traded 14% of LSE volumes in 2019. The judging panel presents Peel Hunt with the 2021 award for Best Equity Research Team (UK).
