Methodology
As part of the 2018 Asian G3 Bond Benchmark Review, Asset Benchmark Research (ABR) asked more than 670 institutional investors active in the Asian G3 bond market to nominate the top sell-side individuals by function: analysts, economists/strategists, salespeople and traders. Some 730 individuals were nominated in 2018 (up from 640 in 2017). The nominations are subject to two weightings: the first according to the rank in the nomination form and the second determined by the rating of the investor casting the vote. This year, ABR introduces the ‘Most improved individual’ category honouring the individuals who have increased their year-on-year weighted score.
The awardees of best individuals in Asian G3 Bonds for 2018 will be honoured at a gala dinner.
