Troika Dialog's analysts were among the top performers in Institutional Investor's "2010 Emerging EMEA Research Team," an annual ranking of leading EM-focused analysts. This year, Troika Dialog Research made significant upward movement following last year’s result, rising to third place overall for the EMEA region and fourth place (unweighted), from 7th and 8th places respectively in 2009. Troika's analysts took seven top-three placements, more than doubling last year's result (three prize spots). Placing in the top two in their respective categories were Evgeny Gavrilenkov, Chief Economist at Troika Dialog and Paolo Zaniboni, CEO of Troika Dialog UK and Head of Troika Dialog Research (Top Analysts – Countries – Russia), and Oleg Maximov (Top Analysts – Industries – Oil and Gas). Placing in the top three in their respective categories were Alexander Kotikov (Utilities) and Mikhail Stiskin (Chemicals), who also split a top-three finish with Sergey Donskoy in 'Metallurgies.'
"This is by far the best result Troika Dialog has ever achieved in this ranking," says Paolo Zaniboni. "It underlines the strength of our research team. We were the largest upward mover within the survey results over the last 12 months, increasing to 3rd in EMEA overall."
