Methodology
The 2020 Asian Local Currency Bond Benchmark Review surveyed over 300 institutional fixed income investors who are active in 10 Asian currency bond markets: China (onshore and offshore), Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
As part of the review, Asset Benchmark Research asked the investors to nominate the top sell-side individuals by function: research (including analysts and economists/strategists), salespeople and traders. The nominations collected are subject to two weightings: the first according to the rank in the nomination form and the second determined by the rating of the individual casting the vote.
Based on the nominations received, the top individuals with the highest weighted score are ranked according to their job function and geographic location. Those individuals that rank below the top however meet a required threshold score and votes are considered in the ‘Highly Commended’ category.
This year more than 600 sellside individuals active in Asian local currency bond markets were nominated and over 200 achieved a rank.
