Primary debt poll 2007: Best by product

Funding officials at the largest 250 borrowers on the global debt capital markets were asked to rate their top three preferred banks in one of three categories: services to clients, major currency sectors, and by product type.

By limiting the polling to this group, Euromoney has sought to gather the opinions of issuers that, through their volume of issuance, are covered by a large group of banks. They issue frequently, and are best placed to judge the relevant merits of different lead managers. Full methodology
