Swedbank best in equity derivativesWednesday, 16 May 2012
Swedbank is best in Sweden in equity derivatives, according to TNS SIFO Prospera’s first ranking of equity derivatives trading in Sweden. The study, which is based on interviews with 42 institutions, includes 10 Nordic and 12 international brokerages.
“Swedbank has a strong track record in derivatives trading, both on the fixed income and equity side. We are very pleased that our customers have confirmed that we are doing a good job”, said Mattias Kindstedt, Head of Equity Research at Swedbank.
The survey also shows that 31 percent of the respondents anticipate increased interest in equity derivatives within institutional trading in the coming year.
“During the past year we have had increased interest in equity derivatives. One of the reasons is the turmoil on the international financial markets, resulting in more customers wanting to use derivatives in order to balance their risks”, Mattias Kindstedt continued.
Nordic banks came in the top five top positions. The survey was conducted between 15 February and 10 May 2012 and included a variety of criteria, from back office routines and ethics to personal contacts and products
