Proximity to clients and understanding of our clients needs are two major factors which have kept SEB at the top of the league tables, says Marcus Nysten, Global Head of Foreign Exchange at SEB.
"We work very closely with our clients and have been able to grow with them. Our clients' high expectations continuously challenge us to first class development, and we have during the last years developed from a transaction related player to also being a trusted advisor. It is of course encouraging to get recognised for this," Nysten concludes.
The Global Finance Magazine survey ranks the performance of the foreign exchange community on a yearly basis, and the selection criteria included transaction volume, market share, scope of global coverage, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative technologies.
