IR Nordic Markets: More than 1000 company specific evaluations have been collected from mid August to October 2017 by means of an internet based survey and telephone interviews with Sell-side analysts predominantly based in the Nordics, UK and US.
Seen to the overall grades in the study, Continuous Information and Openness (Top Management) have declined somewhat in comparison with 2016 study. The average grades for Finnish companies included in the study have increased. Norwegian companies are best in general and Swedish companies hold the lowest overall grades.
This does not mean grades are poor – apart from a couple of examples. Nordic listed companies’ IR-functions hold a very high standard in general. According to analysts we’ve interviewed, Nordic companies in general are very good at IR. Having conducted the study for 20 years now, we have seen many things change – proficiency in IR is an imperative for listed companies today.
