SEB Enskilda best Nordic equity research firm

“That we earn the top ranking trust and business from our client’s year in and year out is a tremendous achievement that requires a very high standard across all colleagues and sites in our offering, Fredrik Carlsson, head of SEB Enskilda says.

Prospera made 200 interviews with leading Nordic institutions from October through December, a quite turbulent time in the Equity market. The survey measures general criteria such as investment advice, analytical competence, sales, salestraders, equity lending, back office and corporate access.

SEB Enskilda claimed the number 1 position in Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Carlsson says SEB should not take its position for granted but must continue to develop the research product, broaden the service offering towards clients, generate more ideas and improve service to clients in order to maintain the leading position.

“I am very grateful to all highly professional colleagues that make this possible. To be on top in 3 out of 4 Nordic markets is a clear sign that we give our client useful tradable investment advice day in and day out”, he says.
