Fixed income investors survey methodology
Since last year Euromoney has combined its existing fixed-income research poll with a new poll that asked investors to nominate the best fixed-income issuers globally and across a range of sectors and borrower types that matched categories in the research poll. The survey is therefore in two parts: best borrower and best research house.
Investors are asked to nominate their top three borrowers in each category based on issuance strategy, credit quality and investor relations.
They were also asked to nominate their top three credit research teams or individuals across the same categories.
Nominated firms are scored 4:3:2 for first-, second- and third-placed votes respectively in each poll.
