Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are also the global 2010 Greenwich quality leaders among corporates – a designation earned by firms whose clients award them quality ratings that exceed those given to competitors by a statistically significant margin.
Among commodity investors, the 2010 Greenwich share leaders in global OTC commodities derivatives are Goldman Sachs and Barclays Capital. The 2010 Greenwich quality leaders in the investor segment are Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs.
