Trade Finance survey 2015 full results

The survey is designed to give our readers valuable information about the trade-finance market. Providers are ranked across a selection of service categories, as well as given an overall global ranking through ratings from their clients.

The survey is split into three parts: the trade-finance provider nominations; the market share splits; and the service category ratings.

Part 1: Clients nominate their three top trade-finance providers globally and by region. Providers receive 4 points for a first place nomination, 3 points for a second place nomination and 2 points for third place. 

Part 2: The average percentage of business each client trades with each provider, globally and by region. 

Part 3: For the individual service categories, the score is the arithmetic mean of the ratings for that category. 

We received 2,348 valid responses to the survey.
