Methodology
The ranking for top investment houses in Asian G3 bonds is generated based on the number of votes, received from the top-rated analysts, economist and strategists, salespeople and traders, for investors in these institutions. The score is also subject to a weighting methodology which is determined by the rating of the individual casting the vote for the investors. A total of 360 different institutions were evaluated and shortlisted to produce the 2018 ranking. These were categorized into five different institution types including asset managers, hedge funds, private banks, banks and insurance companies/ sovereign wealth funds.
