IR Magazine announces winners of Global Top 50 Awards

Awards event held alongside IR Magazine Global Forum 2019 in Paris

IR Magazine has announced the winners of the Global Awards 2019. 

Each year IR Magazine undertakes regional surveys of fund managers, buy-side analysts and sell-side analysts to find out which companies and individuals are the best at investor relations. 

Then, once a year, we combine our regional research to analyze IR best practice on a global basis. The result is a list of the 50 best companies for IR around the world. Prizes are awarded to the companies that come top in their sector.

There is also a special individual prize: the people’s choice award for best investor relations officer. A short list was drawn up of five IR professionals who consistently score well in our investment community research. We then put the short list to a public vote. 

The results were announced in Paris at an awards event following the first day of the IR Magazine Global Forum 2019, a two-day gathering of IR professionals and senior management from around the world.
