The Best Banks survey is open to any foreign exchange end-user, including dealers, brokers, institutional investors and corporations, and is open from 21 August until 22 September. Votes will be weighted, with three points for a first place, two points for second and one for third. Only categories with a sufficient number of votes are included in the final poll. The poll is not designed to reflect volumes traded in any particular market and is therefore not necessarily a direct reflection of market share - voters could base their decisions on a variety of criteria, including pricing, liquidity provision, counterparty risk, speed of execution and reliability. In that sense, this poll should be considered a reflection of how foreign exchange professionals view their peers in terms of overall quality of service. When aggregating the votes, we look to strip out what we consider to be invalid votes. These include people voting for their own firm, multiple votes from the same person or IP address, proxy votes, votes from people using Hotmail or Gmail accounts, votes by people who choose the same firm indiscriminately throughout the poll, votes by people who clearly do not trade the product, and block votes from groups of people on the same desk at the same institution voting for the same firm. The editor's decision is final.
