EuroMoney 2013 FX Poll Results


Yet again the ‘Mighty Deutsche Bank’, takes ’1st place for an impressive 9th consecutive year (2013-05), in the 2013 EuroMoney FX Survey rankings.

Key findings:

  • Deutsche take 1st place for 9th consecutive year, and for first time since 2008 reverses the fall in market share, with a 4.26% YoY rise to 15.18% (14.56% last year), compared to 21.7% in 2008.
  • Citi continues to power ahead, with market share up 21.53% YoY to 14.90% (12.26% last year), compared to 7.49% in 2008 (see here for Citi Velocity post which is built on Caplin’s technology)
  • Bank America Merrill Lynch (BAML) enter the top ten, up 2 places with a 27.80% YoY gain to 3.08% (2.41% last year)
  • Eight of the top twelve banks see fall in market share YoY (lead by Credit Suisse, down to 3.7% from 4.68% last year, a near 21% YoY drop)

The EuroMoney survey is probably the most comprehensive and widely watched in the industry, and no doubt a number of bank e-commerce team bonuses and promotions (or relegation’s) are decided by achieving, defending or missing key ranking positions.

  • Seven of the top twelve banks see rise in market share between 2013-07 (lead by Citi up 5.90% since 2007)
  • Sberbank is the biggest riser up 32 places from 81 to 49th place, although market share is only 0.08%
  • TD Securities is the biggest faller with a drop of 13 places from 23 to 36th place with market share of 0.21%

Chart above showing changes in market share 2013-07. Citi is the biggest winner, whilst Deutsche and UBS are the biggest losers.

Citi vs Deutsche FX Market Share

Chart above contrasts Deutsche and Citi, showing the dramatic rise in Citi’s FX market share. The contrast between Deutsche and Citi is seen even more dramatically when we look at the near doubling of Citi’s market share between 2008 and 2013, and the corresponding 30% fall in Deutsche’s share over the same period.
