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.
