Deutsche Bank accounts for an astonishing 19.26% share of the global FX market, according to over 6,322 institutions that took part in this year’s survey. Total turnover accounted for by the survey was over $85 trillion.

Deutsche Bank increased its market share by 2.54 percentage points compared to the 2005 survey. UBS remains in second place, with a share of 11.86% -- down more than half a percentage point on 2005, despite more than doubling its volume from $4.9 trillion to almost $10 trillion.

Citigroup remained in third place overall, but was the most improved bank overall by market share, rising 2.89 percentage points to 10.39%. Citi was also the highest ranking bank overall for the quality of its FX research.

Other notable moves saw Royal Bank of Scotland break into the top five overall with a market of 6.43%, from 11th place last year; and Bank of America as the highest climber among the top 20 ranked banks overall, moving to 8th place from 16th last year.

The growing importance of leveraged funds in the FX market is demonstrating by the dramatic rise in the number of such funds participating, from 371 to 607 in absolute numbers, and from $13 trillion to $31 trillion by total turnover. Deutsche Bank has more than twice the market share of the second-placed firm in leveraged funds, Barclays Capital.
