EuromoneyFXNews e-trading survey: Methodology
In its inaugural buy-side e-trading survey, EuromoneyFXNews has conducted a qualitative poll of FX participants, spanning clients from non-market-making banks, real-money investors and corporates, representing an annual turnover in excess of $7 trillion. The purpose of the survey was to ascertain their behaviour when using electronic platforms to execute FX, how they choose to transact and the dominant considerations in their choice of venue.
Electronic trading has got to a point in its evolution in which differentiation tends to be minute and involves small, additional features. This survey tries to pinpoint which are most important to the client and whether any of these additional features make a difference.
E-FX survey 2012 methodology
Euromoney surveyed end-users of FX e-platforms worldwide. It received 83 valid responses to the survey, all of which were equally weighted within the results.
Respondents were asked to name their top three single-dealer and multi-dealer platforms. Votes were weighted as follows: first place, four points; second place, three points; third place, two points. These scores were then totalled to produce a ranking.
