NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PhosAgro and Growthpoint Properties are among several notable firms that took home leading positions across their respective sectors in Institutional Investor’s inaugural ranking of the region’s best chief executives, top CFOs, investor relations professionals, and investor relations companies.

- Senior executives are accessible
- IR team is well informed and empowered to speak authoritatively on the company’s behalf
- Timely and appropriate level of financial disclosure
- Responds quickly and thoroughly to requests
- Most constructive conference calls
- Highest quality of meetings through road shows/reversed road shows/conferences
- Highest quality of corporate documents and investor kit materials
- Best commitment to corporate governance
- Delivers insight and useful reports on ESG/SRI metrics
- Best website
“Investing in Emerging EMEA is not for the fainthearted, with economic and geopolitical uncertainties amongst some of the many challenges,” said Amani Korayeim, Director Sales and Product Development All-EMEA. “But in Institutional Investor’s inaugural survey of the global investment community, a strong phalanx of companies and leaders emerge who are excelling at cutting through the challenges, and sharing their companies’ vision and strategy with investors.” She adds, “Perhaps most encouraging, is the array of sectors and countries represented, from Russia to Egypt, Oil and Gas to Constructions & Real Estate all featuring strongly, suggesting that it really is the excellence of the teams in place to navigate through the uncertainty and engage investors. And lastly, in the absence of an objective quality measure of IR but an increasingly institutionalized IR function in the region, the Emerging EMEA Executive Team Survey results of Institutional Investor, will provide an independent vehicle to inform and benchmark companies’ IR strategy and continue to help optimize their outreach.”
