Trade Finance Survey 2017: Methodology

The survey is designed to give our readers valuable information with regard to the trade finance market and give them the opportunity to rank 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.

Part 1:

Clients nominate their top-three trade finance providers globally, by region and domestically. Providers receive four points for a 1st place nomination, three points for 2nd place and two points for 3rd. These scores are then totalled to produce a ranking.

Part 2:

The average percentage of business each client trades with each provider – globally and by region. Each client gives a percentage of business they trade with each of their providers and this is averaged globally/by each region. This will enable us to produce market share rankings by geography.

Part 3:

For the individual service categories, the score is the arithmetic mean of the ratings for that category.

Votes are not included in the survey where:

·         Service providers cast a vote for themselves;

·         Euromoney does not receive confirmation from the respondent of their identity;

·         An individual respondent submits more than one ballot and we cannot resolve the duplication;

·         A respondent’s volume is duplicating that of a colleague’s from the same institution.
