Vote now in the 2014 Risk institutional investor rankings

This year's rankings - and accompanying survey - are now open


Thank you for participating in Risk's institutional investor rankings 2014 - a chance for institutional derivatives end-users to recognise the dealers they think have performed best in the past 12 months.

The ranking is divided into six categories: risk management advisory, interest rates, currencies, credit, equities, and ETFs. A seventh category allows respondents to select their top dealers by currency of the underlying. Please complete the poll by choosing your top three bank counterparties in order of preference in each of the categories.

Only vote in categories you have traded in the last year. If you didn't trade a particular product or currency category over the year, please leave the data field empty.

The rankings also include a set of survey questions, in which respondents are asked for their views on some of the changes and challenges now affecting the OTC market - please share your opinions.

The rankings - including the survey questions - should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. All responses will remain strictly confidential and personal information will not be published or released to any third party.

The results will be available to subscribers in the June 2014 issue of Risk and online at 

Please note that voting is only open to institutional end-users - asset managers, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds and banks. It is not open to bank market-making desks. Votes cast by corporates will be discarded. Please do not vote for your own company or a subsidiary of your company.

The closing date for the poll is April 25, 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact me at +44 (0)20 7968 4581 or

Thanks in advance for your time.
