NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As trading desks across the region brace for the fallout of heightened geo-political and economic risk, being recognized by investors as a market leader is an unparalleled tool to gaining new investors.
More than 12,000 votes were cast by some of the regions most influential investors to name this years’ top electronic, high-touch, and portfolio trading teams along with the best firms providing local market color to the buy-side, as demonstrated in Institutional Investor’s All-Asia Trading Team survey.
Morgan Stanley/Morgan Stanley MUFG Securities Co. was the top choice among buy-siders with a first place position for pan-Asia electronic trading, high-touch Trading, and local market color. UBS came in second and Goldman Sachs third for pan-Asia electronic trading and high-touch Trading. In pan-Asia local market color, UBS also placed second, while Citi secured third place.
Buy-side cash equity traders were surveyed about their top high-touch, electronic, and local market color providers across seven defined regions: Australia/New Zealand, China/Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Developing Trading Markets, and Frontier Trading Markets. No specific region was asked for in Portfolio trading.
Institutional Investor surveyed 400 heads of trading and traders across 345 buy-side firms in Asia. More than 33 percent of voting firms paid $5 million or more in commissions to the Street, and nearly 30 percent of those firms managed $1 billion or more in assets in their portfolios.
The survey report includes in-depth data for 25 attributes across high-touch, electronic, portfolio trading, and local market color — providing trade execution providers a lense into how they fared against their peers and helping them understand their performance across different funds, geographies, and wallet sizes.
