Credit poll's low-grade financials

This is the league table you didn't want to come top of. Euromoney's dedicated team of researchers checks the validity of every vote in our polls. It's what helps make annual fixtures such as the credit research survey the benchmark poll for each industry.

We know that banks take the results very seriously – in some cases, perhaps too seriously. Of course we can understand that some people may not see the prominent warnings about not voting for your own institution. And sometimes the mouse may inadvertently slip in the hand when it comes to casting that precious vote. But 150 times? Or 40 even? Seems like more than coincidence.
