Not content with dominating Asian equity research rankings, UBS Warburg has now taken the top position in our fixed income research poll. UBSW tops the overall ranking - created from a blended score of our six categories - although it was closely followed by ING.
As can be seen below, the big gainers in this year's poll were UBSW, ING, Citigroup and HSBC, while those who fell in the rankings were Deutsche (from first to sixth), JPMorgan (from second to fifth) as well as CSFB.
In the final two categories, Citi/ Solly took the top position in Asian sovereign credit research, while the credit strategy award was again won by UBSW. Taken overall, UBSW won three categories and the only category where it did relatively poorly (and was flat on last year's result) was sovereign credit research.
Now in its sixth year, our fixed income research poll received its best ever response this year. We received 276 votes (up from 117 last year), representing around 250 institutions. These included asset managers, banks, and those making fixed income allocation decisions at private banks. The full results will appear in the November 15 issue of FinanceAsia magazine. Institutions were allowed to vote for more than one house.
