Credit trading survey 2011: Methodology

Credit trading survey 2011: Results index

The Euromoney Credit survey is looking to become the most comprehensive quantitative and qualitative annual study available on the credit markets. The survey excludes a number of categories of market participant, which means that the total volume reported by the survey is not and is not intended to be an accurate reflection of total global credit activity. Euromoney aims to capture client price-taking activity only. However, given the geographical and participant-type spread represented by the survey, Euromoney believes that the survey provides an accurate proxy for trends in the major areas of activity polled and accurately discerns the relative performance of the banks ranked.

The 2011 survey covers volumes traded from April 2010 to April 2011 – i.e Q2 2010/Q3 2010/Q4 2010 and Q1 2011. All voting is carried out electronically via a secure, dedicated data collection website. Respondents can amend votes prior to the closing deadline.


Euromoney splits out accounts and volumes by geography, institution type, currency and total account size. They are defined as follows:

Geography: The location of where the voter is physically located NOT the domicile or head office of the institution that the voter represents

Institution type: Bank non-market making/Hedge Fund & Private Equity/Insurance/Real money & Traditional asset managers

Currency: Euro/Dollar/Sterling/Yen

Total Account Size: The total amount traded by that institution over the survey period with all market making counterparties.
