Top market position driven by strength in rates, municipals and emerging markets
New York September 18, 2019 – Citi has claimed the top ranking in Overall U.S. Fixed Income Market Share, according to Greenwich Associates’ annual benchmark study. This recognition follows Citi’s top share and quality accolades in the 2018 Global Fixed Income study also conducted by Greenwich Associates and released earlier this year.
Between March and May 2019, Greenwich Associates conducted 954 interviews with institutional investors active in fixed income in the United States. Interview topics included sales, trading and research activities and preferences, product and dealer use, service provider evaluations, market trend analysis, and investor compensation.
“Building out our infrastructure and enhancing our capabilities has become core to our strategy and a key factor in our success as we continue to work hard to be the best for our clients,” said Jim O’Donnell, Global Head of Investor Sales and Relationship Management. “We are truly grateful for this recognition and the ongoing support of our clients. It’s a true testament that our strategy and approach is aligned with their needs.”
“Citi’s consistent and relentless focus on delivering high quality services to its clients across products and over a sustained period of time has culminated in the bank being the number one dealer in overall U.S. fixed income market share,” said Greenwich Associates Managing Director Frank Feenstra. “Citi has been the co-leader on share in prior years but this is the first time that it has set itself apart from the competition.”
In addition to the distinction of being overall leader in the U.S., Citi earned the largest market share in the following individual fixed income products: rates, municipals, emerging markets1 and e-Trading2. The firm was also rated the leader for Quality in Overall U.S. Fixed-Income, according to the study.
