Asian G3 Bond Benchmark Review

Executive Summary

The Asian G3 Bond Benchmark Review has been conducted annually since 1999. It provides a wealth of data on the product needs of institutional investors and the market penetration of banks active in the Asian G3 bond market and Asian CDS space. It also delivers a detailed analysis of investors' buying behavior when selecting their counterparties, and provides insights into how investors think.

We cover over 300 international institutional investors, including international and Asian-based asset managers, banks, private banks, insurance companies and hedge funds active in the Asian G3 bond market and Asian CDS space. Subscribers are given exclusive insights into their views, user profiles and buying behaviour.

The data sets cover sales, research and trading activities and include: market penetration, market share/share of wallet, client satisfaction, best individuals and best practices in sales and research. Qualitative data is also presented. The review is conducted during the second half of the year.

Methodology

The Asian G3 Bond Benchmark Review is designed to accommodate the requirements of the respondents. Our questionnaire is meticulously crafted, capitalizing on a deep knowledge of the industry and close ties with the content specialists which enables us to create a high-level, relevant survey.

Our dedicated research team first reaches potential participants introducing them to the scope and purpose of the review and directs them to an online survey. Personalized follow-up calls are then made. Face-to-face interviews may also be conducted. Because we speak directly to our respondents instead of merely passing on forms they can fill out, we provide an in-depth look into the perspective of investors that few others are capable of. Qualitative feedback and observations are transcribed and reported alongside quantitative output, giving subscribers detailed, actionable results.
