Deutsche Bank has been ranked the Best Overall Derivatives Provider in Asia Risk’s End User Derivatives Survey 2007 - a survey covering more than 3000 end-users of derivatives across Asia and Japan.
End users are classified as corporate clients, life insurers, pension funds, asset management firms, hedge fund managers and private banks. Described by the magazine as ‘one of the region’s foremost innovators’, Deutsche Bank topped the survey with a clear 4% lead over the second-placed competitor.
Notable in this year’s survey was the upsurge in total votes for the hotly contested equity derivatives category, where Deutsche came first for the second year running. Greater participation by the private banking community, which the magazine notes ‘played to Deutsche Bank’s strengths’, helped to highlight the investment the Bank has made in expanding its coverage of the region.
