UBS retains top spot in FX Week awards

Notably, in these areas, domestic banks stood out as the dominant players. ANZ was voted best bank in Australian dollar, and with one exception – Citigroup – the rest of the top-five were Australian banks. It was the same story for the Canadian dollar, with Royal Bank of Canada taking the top spot, and Citi again standing out as the only top-five non-Canadian. For Scandinavian currencies, the trend was even more marked, with SEB in first place, followed by Danske Bank, Nordea Group, Svenska Handelsbanken and DnB Norbank.

Seppo Leskinen, head of FX at SEB in London said that clients rate the country focus that Nordic banks have, in a region, which has traditionally had volatile currencies.
