Welcome to the new look of Asiamoney polls. Asiamoney Polls is now rebranded under the the Global Capital brand and we are pleased to announce the FX and Fixed Income Poll is conducted on this new and revamped site. The Asiamoney FX and Fixed Income Poll 2014 invites financial managers, corporate manager and investors to assess their service providers in the Asia-Pacific region.

The questionnaire is organised into five sections: Personal & Corporate Information, FX, Interest Rate, Commodities, Credit; Personal & Corporate Information is mandatory, then respondents can select any of the four asset classes they wish to complete. Respondents will be transported directly to the selected sections and don't have to browse through the entire questionnaire. Each section requires around 5 minutes to complete.

Respondents don't have to complete the questionnaire in one sitting, they can fill in part of the questionnaire and continue at a latter date, as long as they use the same computer/device, the system saves their previous input.

Respondents will receive a validation email from Asiamoney 1 to 2 working days after they have submitted the poll, and they need to click on the validation click in this email to complete the auditing process.

In reviewing past results for the Fixed Income Poll we see Citi dominating across Credit and Interest Rates. HSBC and StanChart are also regulars in the top five. Since 2012, ambitous local banks like ANZ and CIMB have made their presence felt, advancing into the top five and displacing traditional big players such as Deutsche Bank and BAML.

Outside the top five, there is flurry of activity as global and large local banks jostle for position in the top 10 in the Asia-Pacific region.

One bank not evident here in these ranks but no doubt attracts much attention from its peers is Singapore-based OCBC which has consistently outperformed in recent years across all three fixed income asset classes and should continue to exert pressure on both incumbents and challengers alike.

In FX, Citi have established themselves are the top player while HSBC, StanChart and Deutsche Bank sharing some of the spoils in the top ranks. ANZ and CIMB also demonstrate their ambition with impressive climbs.
