The borrower poll
Euromoney polled treasurers and financial officers at corporates, financial institutions, state agencies and supranational organizations. Respondents were asked to nominate banks providing the best service in capital raising and liability management.
We received 148 replies. Breakdown by type: corporates 37%, banks 40%, financial institutions 9%, institutional investors 2%, sovereigns and state agencies 11%, supranationals 1%. Breakdown by region: UK 21%, Germany 12%, Scandinavia 8%, central and eastern Europe 4%, rest of Europe 18%, North America 14%, Asia 15%, Latin America 5%, others 3%.
The results were compiled by awarding points on a sliding scale of 3:2:1. Banks' votes are aggregated to include subsidiaries where appropriate.
