For the Developed Europe Trading Team, Institutional Investor polled buy-side traders and other investment professionals at asset management firms with investments in European equities, asking them to rate brokers on various attributes for trading and execution. We received responses from 183 individual traders and portfolio managers at 151 firms.

Attributes for Electronic Trading:
- Algorithm Customization

Attributes for High-Touch Trading:

Participants first rated their top firms within each attribute on a scale from 1-5. A numerical score was produced by weighting each vote based on both the responding firm’s European equity commissions and their rating. Scores for each attribute were aggregated together to create the top Trading Leaders.
