About Asiamoney Retail Brokers Poll 

The Asiamoney Retail Brokers Poll is a prestigious platform that recognises the best retail brokers and analysts in Asia, as voted by retail investors themselves. Surveyed separately from the institutional-focused Brokers Poll, the retail section of the Brokers Poll received a total of 9696 valid responses. The Poll invites retail investors from across Asia to vote for their best broker and Favourite Analyst. It is customers who vote for their brokerage and rate their service.

The online questionnaire was brief and respondents were asked to vote for the following categories in their market:

- Best Retail Brokerage

- Best Analyst/Commentator

Respondents were questioned about the markets they invest in, trading frequency, and the approximate size of the stock portfolio. For the qualitative section, the survey asked respondents to rate the services provided by the brokerage they nominate. The service categories are:

- internet trading platforms

- pricing

- speed of execution

- customer service

The fact that Sharekhan ranked No.1 overall for these services is testament to how our customers feel about them.


Brokerages that receive sufficient votes will be assessed on their average score in each category of service and ranked against all other brokerages in that category.

Credibility in the Methodology of Asiamoney Polls 

1. Winners are determined by the total number of votes they receive.

2. A broker who receives greater than 5% of the votes can only be ranked.

3. Audit of responses by Asiamoney, thus no scope for manipulating votes.

4. Suspected fraudulent responses are rendered void and not eligible to participate in the future.
