Deutsche Bank emerges again at the top of the Euromoney FX poll.
The top five banks consolidate a clear lead over the rest of the market.

This year’s poll was the largest ever. A total of 8,337 validated respondents, accounting for $124.5 trillion of annual turnover, voted. This was up from 6,322 votes in 2006, which represented $85 trillion of annual activity.

Deutsche Bank captured a 19.30% market share – almost identical to 2006 – representing just over $24 trillion worth of activity. UBS is still in second place but its market share has risen almost three percentage points to an impressive 14.85%.

Competition for third place was tight. There is almost nothing to choose between Citi in third, RBS in fourth and Barclays Capital, which drops one place to fifth, even though it has increased its market share by 2.19 percentage points.

Just outside the top five, HSBC stands out as a major anomaly in the results. It does exceptionally well in most of the qualitative surveys yet it fails to convert this into market share. In fact HSBC’s market share this year has fallen to 4.36% from 5.04%..
