Fixed income research poll 2007: Banks might pay for indifference to research
Euromoney has incorporated its annual credit research poll into a new fixed income research survey. The intention has been to give those banks that no longer follow the traditional fundamental sell-side credit research model a chance to be nominated by their clients.

Euromoney’s latest credit research poll indicates that some of the top-ranking banks have recognized this, taking a ‘third way’ that allies trading desk focused research with a sustained published research capability. Jethro Wookey looks at the trends behind the latest results.
THESE ARE NOT the halcyon days of credit research.
