“ANZ has been notable for the speed with which it is gaining admiration from corporate and bank respondents, with the bank zooming up the charts,” Asiamoney said.
While ANZ ranked No. 2 in this year’s poll, it was not in the Top 10 FX providers in Asia as voted by financial institutions in 2011. This year, ANZ also jumped to fifth place from No. 8 among corporate respondents in the poll.
ANZ Global Head of FX and Commodities Eddie Listorti said: “In an ever-changing global market and regulatory environment it is important for us to intimately know our client needs and to provide them with the right products to satisfy their hedging and investment requirements.
“We are in a unique position to leverage our local expertise of the Asian and Pacific markets which we have developed as part of our super regional strategy, as well as being the partner of choice for our clients in our traditional home markets of Australia and New Zealand,” Mr Listorti said.
ANZ ranked No. 1 for FX options and No. 2 for FX research and market coverage in Asia Pacific as voted by financial institutions.
ANZ also ranked first for overall FX services, FX products and services, and FX research and market coverage among foreign FX providers in Hong Kong; No. 1 for FX options among foreign FX providers in Korea; and first for overall FX services, FX products and services, and FX research and market coverage among foreign FX providers in Vietnam.
