Respondents to the 23rd Brokers Poll consider the Hong Kong-headquartered firm to provide the region’s best research and sales, two years after it last received the title.
The results are especially noteworthy this year due to the level of investor participation. Asiamoney received a total of 5,914 valid individual responses from 2,295 different institutions, making this the most comprehensive Brokers Poll to date.
HSBC follows CLSA as the second-most popular Asian provider of research and sales, an impressive improvement over the bank’s fifth-place finish in 2011. Last year’s poll winner UBS has been voted the third-most popular brokerage, marking the first time in seven years that it does not share the top two rankings for Asia ex-Japan.
There are no changes to the top brokerages in Australia from last year, with Macquarie continuing to lead UBS and then CLSA as the country’s favourite equity broker. In Japan, Nomura continues to remain the most popular brokerage, with CLSA following and Daiwa Securities rising one rank to take third place.

Stability remains the theme in most of the other key Asian markets, with most of 2011’s best local brokerages retaining their titles apart from the winners in South Korea and The Philippines.
