Short lists revealed for IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2017
The shortlists are out for the IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2017, with winners to be announced at the gala event in London on June 21.
Making up the short lists for some of the most coveted categories of the night – best overall investor relations and best investor relations officer – include big names such as last year’s best overall IR (large cap) winner, AstraZeneca, as well as firms such as Iberdrola, Deutsche Post, Hugo Boss and 2014 winner of the best IR for an IPO category, Moncler.
The winners of these categories, as well as best corporate governance & disclosure, the best in region and best in sector gongs are all chosen via research and interviews with the investment community.
This marks the second year of the new-style judged awards, self-nomination categories which allow companies to put themselves up for an award. This year’s judges – IR Magazine deputy editor Candice de Monts-Petit; Heinrich Ey, co-CIO for European mid/small cap at Allianz; Abigail Herron, head of responsible investment engagement at Aviva Investors; Catherine James, former head of IR at Diageo; and Nicholas Melhuish, head of global equities at Amundi – have narrowed down the submissions to reveal the short lists across eight categories.
In the running for awards ranging from best use of multimedia for IR to best investor events and best crisis management are companies including Turkey’s TAV Airports, Portugal’s Galp Energia, the UK’s Unilever and Russia’s Aeroflot.
The winners of both the researched and judged awards will be revealed on June 21 at London’s Park Lane Hotel. Click here for more information or to secure your spot at the black tie event.
