Bank league tables: Turning the tables

League tables have long been a point of dispute.

During Euromoney’s recent trip around the senior offices of Wall Street, these disputes came to the forefront. One banker tossed the tables print-out aside, saying they were just plain wrong, another choked on his tea and murmured words that can’t be printed again.

The same banker that choked and swore then saw his bank in the number-one slot on one table. "Now," he said pointing to the table, "I don’t dispute this table. You should let them know they got this one right."

It was this table that had been tossed aside by a competitor bank and corrected, with a cross and "wrong" written in the margin by a third banker at yet another bank. And who said bankers were above childish squabbling?
