London, New York, Singapore, Sydney, December 20, 2011 – ICAP, the world’s leading interdealer broker, has been voted top overall interdealer broker by its customers in Asia Risk Magazine’s annual interdealer rankings. This is the fifth consecutive year that ICAP has won this award. ICAP also took first place in three of the four individual categories – interest rate derivatives, currency derivatives and equity derivatives – and won 35 of the 74 awards, three times more than its closest competitor.

Hugh Gallagher, Chief Executive Officer, ICAP, Asia Pacific said: said: “We are delighted to have been voted top overall interdealer broker in the 2011 Asia Risk survey. Our team and those who support them work very hard to offer value to our customers and we are pleased that these efforts have been recognised. The region has performed strongly and ICAP’s unique position in the Asian market means that we are able to provide our customers with the complete array of electronic, hybrid, voice and post trade services, regardless of the regulatory environment or market volatility. We would like to thank our customers for their support and we look forward to continuing to work with them to grow and strengthen our respective businesses in this strategically important market.”

Polling for the Asia Risk Interdealer Rankings 2011 was carried out online in September and October by canvassing the votes of thousands of dealers and brokers in the region. Participants voted for their top three derivatives dealers and top broker in order of preference across interest rates, foreign exchange, credit and equity for the past year. Voters were based across the Asia-Pacific region.
