Euromoney Trade Finance survey 2011: Methodology
The trade finance survey is designed to give Euromoney’s readers valuable information on the trade finance market. It provides a ranking of trade finance providers across a selection of service categories and an overall, global ranking of providers as rated by their clients.
The survey is split into three parts: the trade finance provider nominations; the market-share splits; and the service category ratings.
Clients nominate their top-three trade finance providers globally and by regions. Providers receive four points for a first-place nomination, three points for a second-place nomination and two points for third place. These scores are totalled to produce a ranking. Country rankings were also produced based on the location of the respondent and the global nominations they gave.
Average percentage of business each client trades with each provider – by region. Each client gave a percentage of business it trades with each of its providers and this was averaged by each region.
For the individual service categories, the score is the arithmetic mean of the ratings for that category.
This year we received 1,037 votes with the following geographical breakdown: Asia 43%, Western Europe 24%, Central and Eastern Europe 8%, Middle East 8%, Africa 7%, Latin America 5%, North America 4%.
