Fixed income investors 2011 survey: Fixed income research and Best borrowers
Euromoney's Fixed income research survey and Best borrowers survey asks investors to nominate the Best fixed income issuers globally and across a range of sectors and borrower types that matched categories in the research survey.
The survey is therefore in two parts:
>Fixed income research survey
Institutional investors tell us which analysts have made the best calls in the past 12 months. An invaluable guide to investors looking to diversify their European portfolios.
| >Borrowers survey
Euromoney’s Best borrowers capture the most important names and trends seen across the globe during the past 12 months.
Euromoney asked investors to nominate the best fixed income issuers both 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 research house and best borrower.
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 place votes respectively in each survey. The scores are then totalled for each individual category and these scores totalled for the overall table.
In total 1,820 investors took part, an increase of 4.7% on last year, of which 1,800 valid responses were received for the fixed-income research part of the poll; 941 valid responses were received for the best borrowers part of the poll which included individual nominations for 815 separate borrowers.
