The AsianInvestor prime broking poll was conducted during the months of July and August 2009. We received a record number of responses and we'd like to thank everyone who took the time to participate.

In the November edition of AsianInvestor, we will publish additional results, such as individual winners and their vote tallies, as well as votes concerning which areas people would like to see prime brokers make extra efforts, and which would be their preferred prime brokers if they were to switch accounts.

Congratulations to our poll winners Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley and their respective prime broking teams.
