Over the past 12 years GFI has been ranked as the leading broker in more categories of credit derivatives than any other wholesale broker on a global basis.
GFI operates a leading global electronic trading platform for credit derivatives âCreditMatchÂ®â that displays credit default swaps and bond prices together on the same screen. GFI's hybrid strategy, where users of CreditMatchÂ® can also utilize experienced voice brokers to execute any trade, including large or bespoke orders, opens up more trading opportunities for its customers.
Scott Tatham, Managing Director GFI Group Asia, said: âWe are delighted that GFI has once again been selected by our customers as the number one broker in Australian Credit Derivatives. This result reflects our commitment to providing a superior serviceâ and added, âIn the past year we have enhanced our GFI CreditMatchÂ® system, which taken in conjunction with our leading voice broker team has allowed GFI to produce a very effective hybrid broking model.â
Risk Australiaâs derivatives survey was completed by nearly 200 dealers, brokers, corporates and asset managers in Australia and New Zealand. Participants were asked to vote for their top three derivatives dealers in order of preference in derivatives categories in which they had traded over the course of the year.
GFI has also been ranked the number one credit derivative broker in the geographical regions of Americas, Europe and Asia by Risk magazine in 2010.
