Realtid.se – Hon är bäst i Sverige på IR

Published December 5th 2018 – Realtid.se

https://www.realtid.se/hon-ar-bast-i-sverige-pa-relationer-med-investerare

I en tuff kamp mellan Sveriges tyngsta inom investerarrelationer – ir – är nu en vinnare korad. Dessutom de främsta finanscheferna på området och inte minst de bästa börsbolagen.

För 21:a året i rad har analysföretaget Regi nu utsett Sveriges främsta inom investerarrelationer, ir. Drygt 300 finansanalytiker har betygsatt 80 nordiska börsbolag i 25 olika kategorier, på en skala mellan ett och tio. Analytikerna ska ha bevakat bolagen under minst ett års tid.

Bästa svenska ir-ansvariga (iro):

  1. Ann-Sofie Nordh, Sandvik
  2. Emmett Harrison, Swedish Match
  3. Magnus Dalhammar, Investor
  4. André Lövgren, Skanska
  5. Magnus Hurst & Björn Tibell, SAS

Bästa svenska finanschefer (cfo) inom ir:

  1. Hans Ola Meyer, Atlas Copco
  2. Oscar Hellström, Gränges
  3. Tomas Eliasson, Sandvik
  4. Fredrik Rystedt, SEB
  5. Anders Karlsson, Swedbank

Bland kriterierna finns alltifrån hur bra årsredovisningen är till hur väl underhållen hemsidan är. Nytt för i år är bland annat csr (corporate social responsibility), samhällsansvar och hållbarhet, samt årsredovisningens avsnitt om framtid och strategi.

De främsta svenska bolagen på ir-området är:

Investor
Sandvik
Gränges
Swedbank
Swedish Match

– Marginalerna är väldigt små mellan Investor och Sandvik, säger Mikael Kärrlander, senior partner på Regi.

– Bolagen på toppen håller alla en otroligt hög kvalitet i sitt investerarmaterial. Utslagsgivande är relationer, att vara anträffbar, grad av service och samtidigt förmåga att följa alla regler. Bara för att man är duktig på ekonomi betyder det inte att man är bra på att presentera det på en scen framför en massa människor.

En utmaning är att det har kommit en hel del nya regleringar bara det senaste året, påpekar Mikael Kärrlander.

Bästa bolag inom ir i Finland:

  1. Kemira
  2. Cargotec
  3. Neste

Bästa bolag inom ir i Norge:

  1. Yara International
  2. Tomra
  3. Ocean Yield

Bästa bolag inom ir i Danmark:

  1. Tryg
  2. Genmab
  3. William Demant Holding

– Det mest intressanta med de övriga nordiska länderna är danska Tryg, som tar både första platsen på bolagslistan och bästa ir-chef (Gianandrea Roberti), säger Mikael Kärrlander.

Press release_general_Regi_IR_NordicMarkets_2018_nominees_20181129

The nominees for best Company, IRO and CFO are listed below.

In total, 80 companies are included in the 21stedition of IR Nordic Markets. Financial analysts have rated companies they actively follow, based on objective opinions and personal experience. The survey includes 25 criteria, from the Annual Report to the perception of top management’s communication skills and competence.

— It’s been an interesting year with a number of cases where communication with the markets has been coupled with many challenges. The study includes new areas of inquiry and we’ve looked at a couple of issues in particular. More information shortly. Apart from the best companies, we will also award the best IRO and CFOs in each Nordic country respectively, says Mikael Kärrlander, Senior Consultant at Regi.

In Sweden, nominated companies are Investor, Gränges, Sandvik, Swedbank and Swedish Match.

Ocean Yield, Tomra and Yara International top the list in Norway. Genmab, Tryg and William Demant Holding top the list in Denmark. Cargotec, Kemira and Neste are nominated in Finland.

New criteria in this year’s edition of the study include CSR & Sustainability, the Annual Report’s outlook on future and strategy, Financial Reporting along with a new section focusing on the IR-team.

—  In general, Nordic listed companies receive high grades for their financial communication, the home-page and other more or less standardized items. Still, there are several areas that will develop and probably improve with time. A parallel survey including 100 Nordic IR-Managers has also been conducted and will show some interesting insights as to what areas will be most prioritized in the near future. We’ll publish the results shortly after the main study, says Mikael Kärrlander.

Nominated Nordic companies, IROs and CFOs are presented on the next page.
