ABN AMRO Equity Brokerage once again earned third place in the Benelux Best Broker category in the leading Thompson Reuters Extel Survey, in addition to winning top position in the Benelux Equity Sales category. This confirms the bank’s position as best distribution platform for listed companies in the Benelux region.
Aside from this first place for Equity Sales, podium prizes were also awarded for Equity Research, Equity Trading/Execution and Corporate Access. ABN AMRO Equity Research was voted the third best team in the Benelux countries, a key category position it also claimed in 2013. This year, we also came third in the rankings for Equity Trading and Corporate Access. Ferdinand Vaandrager, Head of Markets Sales, commented: “We believe that we have what it takes to move up the rankings and we have very clear aspirations: to become Number One in all four categories.”
Not long in the United States
Winning third place is even more special, as ABN AMRO has only been active in the United States for a relatively short time, and success in this region is key if we are to improve our ratings.
