Deutsche Bank has retained its top position as the global market share leader in fixed income for the third consecutive year, according to the industry benchmark study by Greenwich Associates.
The bank captured a 10.7% share of the global fixed income market in 2012 with almost two thirds of investors naming Deutsche Bank an active counterparty, according to the study, which amalgamates Greenwich Associates’ regional fixed income market surveys.
Deutsche Bank performed strongly in all regions. In US fixed income, Deutsche Bank continued to gain market share and retained its No 1 overall rank with 12.2% of the market. Deutsche Bank also retained its No 2 positions in Europe and Asia ex-Japan, remaining No 4 in Japan.
By individual products Deutsche Bank was ranked: No 1 for interest rate derivatives and asset-backed securities; No 2 for investment grade credit, pass-throughs and government bonds; and retained its top 5 rankings across other major product groups.
By client type, Deutsche Bank remained the No 1 partner by market share with hedge funds and banks and increased its market share to win the most business globally from insurers and central banks.
Zar Amrolia and Wayne Felson, Co-Heads of Fixed Income and Currencies, said: “Despite challenging markets and constant change, Deutsche Bank continues to be the global leader in fixed income and is focused on maintaining its leadership position over the coming years.
"With regulatory changes expected to push more flow business onto electronic channels, developing market-leading technology will be a key priority in 2013."
In December, Deutsche Bank's expertise in fixed income origination was recognised when the Bank was named Bond House of the Year, one of the top awards from IFR Magazine. It was one of nine awards the Bank won from IFR that also included EMEA High-Yield Bond House, Sterling Bond House and SSAR Bond House.
