May 22 (Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG analyst Richard Smith was named the best head of a European equity research department covering the biggest stocks in a poll by Sammons Associates, a London-based recruitment firm.

JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Paul Huxford ranked second and Terry Sinclair of Citigroup Inc. was third. Charles Hall of Peel Hunt LLP topped the ranking of the best heads of small- and mid-capitalization equity-research departments.

The results are drawn from a survey of institutional fund managers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Sammons Associates said in an e-mailed statement today.

“The last year has been very challenging for the industry,” Sammons Chairman Jonathan Evans said in the statement. “Despite this, the heads of research have maintained their levels of excellence in equity research for when the markets return.”
