In light of the recent developments in electronic trading for Asian bonds in the secondary market, Asset Benchmark Research conducted a survey assessing the current landscape in the second half of 2015. The project took place over two and a half months and surveyed 550 traders and portfolio managers predominantly from Asia, Europe and the US concerning their trading habits and pain points. The questionnaire also looked at the respondents' investment universe, allocation of trading by geographic location and counterparty preferences.
Our methodology is rigorous and designed to accommodate the requirements of respondents. Our questionnaires are meticulously crafted, capitalizing on a deep knowledge of the industry and close ties with the content specialists which enable us to create a high-level, relevant survey.
Our dedicated research team first reaches traders and portfolio managers, walking them through the scope and purpose of the project and directs them to an online survey. Personalized follow-up calls are then made to ensure detailed, qualitative insights are obtained. Face-to-face interviews may also be conducted. Because we speak directly to our respondents instead of merely passing on forms they can fill out, we provide an in-depth look into the perspective of corporates that few others are capable of. Qualitative feedback and observations are transcribed and reported alongside quantitative output, giving subscribers detailed, actionable results.
