Methodology
The ranking for the top five investment houses in Asian local currency bonds is 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. More than 300 different institutions across the region including asset managers, banks, hedge funds / private equities, insurance companies, private banks, securities firms, and sovereign wealth funds / pension funds were evaluated to generate the 2019 ranking.
The awardees of top five investment houses in Asian local currency bonds for 2019 will be honoured at a gala dinner.
