The German lender leaped six spots forward to place second in the overall volume global market share survey. The company has 8.41 percent of the market trailing only behind JPMorgan with 9.81 percent.
Citi and XTX Markets have switched places this year, and are placed 3rd and 4th, while UBS dropped into 5th spot after placing second in 2018. Deutsche’s leap forward was mirrored in the spot and forwards segment, where XTX Markets took the lead with 9.92 percent of the market. JPMorgan is in the second spot holding a 9.3 percent market share.
