Trade finance poll 2010 methodology
The survey is designed to give our readers valuable information on the trade finance market and the opportunity to rank trade finance providers across a selection of service categories and an overall global ranking of providers as rated by their clients.
Clients nominated their top-three trade finance providers globally and by regions. Providers received four points for a first-place nomination, three points for a second place and two points for a third place. These scores were then summed to produce a ranking.
For the individual service categories the score was an average of the ratings for that category.
For the average percentage of business each client trades with each provider by region, each client gave a percentage of business they trade with each of their providers and this was averaged by each region.
We received 1,043 valid responses to the survey.
