Awards Methodology

The CMDPortal Winners in Debt Capital Markets Awards credit the best performances by fixed income dealers, issuers and investors in the previous 12 months.

After collecting feedback from industry participants, deciding on specific Award categories, and where relevant consulting available data and league tables, nominations were put together for the awards. Factors that were taken into account were the size, depth and growth of specific markets. In Money Fund Awards we decided on a totally data driven approach to determine the winners.

League Tables play an integral role in assessing competitive strengths. In combination with an analysis of key deals and performance over the year, we arrived at a grouping of six nominees for various award categories.

Once nominees were confirmed, it was time to narrow down each category to choose the winner. Five main avenues were utilised to accomplish this:

1. Polls: As a collaborative portal, participation in our polls is a crucial element in determining award winners. Polls opened in November and saw excellent engagement from the CMDportal money and bond market audiences of investors, dealers and issuers. We asked issuers to vote for dealers, dealers for issuers, and investors for both.

2. Pitch books and Questionnaires: A tailored questionnaire was distributed to each nominee in order to gain insights into their performance throughout the year. We received detailed responses from a large number of market participants that helped shape our decision making. Additionally, several firms provided presentations that outlined highlights and specific points of their performance.

3. Interviews: In person meetings were conducted with potential award winners, while conference calls took place with several more. These discussions are a key part of gathering insights into the strategies of institutions and examining the decision-making process behind their accomplishments. Institutions were also invited to suggest new developments and pitch for accomplishments during the year, as we did not want to restrict the possibilities for acknowledgement. This resulted in additional winning categories being included.

4. League Tables: League table rankings provide statistical evidence of outperformance throughout the year. In many award categories we consulted the ranking of issuers and dealers in more than one league table. Invariably both private placement and syndicated league tables across relevant currencies were consulted for performance throughout the year. As is market standard, unless the award category warranted it, self-led transactions where not considered. In money markets we primarily consulted the market share league tables. In the CMDportal Data Wiki, all data is networked with over 7,000 issuer users participants affording a high accuracy of data.

5. Calculus: Calculative tools where used to measure diversification scores for Money Market Funds. We refer to the money market fund award write up (Investors) and the methodology for more information on how this was done. An integrated approach combining results from the above listed methods allowed us to determine the award winners for 2019.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to participate in the process.
