Hong Kong – Greenwich Associates has announced that Citi has been named the Top Dealer by Market Share for the third year running in their 2018 Asia Fixed Income study.
Greenwich Associates interviewed nearly 800 investors across Asia (excluding Japan) for their annual Fixed Income survey. Greenwich concluded that, "Citi remains the overall leader in Asian fixed income this year both among Citi priority clients and across the broader market reflecting continued strengths in both the breadth and depth of its client franchise and distinction in product/coverage quality. Citi continues to lead the field by a wide margin," said Greenwich.
This year's survey also showed that Citi maintains its #1 rank in Interest Rate Derivatives as well as in Investment Grade Credit. Additionally, Citi ranks top 3 in market share in G10 Government Bonds and G3 Asian bonds. Citi was the only bank to rank as a top 3 dealer across every client segment.
"We acknowledge that the level of competition for institutional client business in Asia Fixed Income keeps rising, and therefore maintaining our position requires continuous investment in our technology, research, trading and coverage. Increasingly, clients look for consistency and excellence of delivery across all of these metrics from their providers, and we are committed to extending our leadership in these areas to serve our clients best. We thank them for their recognition in the survey," said Julia Raiskin, Head of Investor Sales Asia Pacific.
