Overall ranking by market share: based on the total volume of foreign exchange business placed annually with each bank. To obtain this figure, we asked respondents to estimate the proportion of their total annual foreign exchange dealings that were placed with up to 10 individual banks. 1,200 respondents supplied this.

All other results were compiled on a scale of 4:3:2 and are not weighted according to volume.
