Leading global security solutions company G4S has been named top quoted company for Investor Relations in the Support and Business Services Sector in the 36th Thomson Reuters Extel Survey announced today.

The complete results cover 31 Pan-European industry sectors, all major European countries and include extensive trend analysis on the growing relevance of IR to the investment community.

The survey results reflected the contribution of more than 5,000 professionals from more than 1,400 buy-side firms, more than 2,000 analysts from 172 brokerage firms/research houses and nearly 400 of Europe’s largest quoted companies worldwide.

Steve Kelly, Global Head of Surveys at Thomson Reuters, said: “The unprecedented market turbulence has highlighted the importance that the buy-side and sell-side attach to quality IR from quoted companies. It is during times like these that the importance of communication and engagement comes to the fore. The teams and individuals highlighted in the Thomson Reuters Extel Survey deserve huge congratulation for their contribution to the efficient running of the equity capital markets throughout these volatile times.”

G4S CEO Nick Buckles said: “The current climate has underlined the importance of developing close and meaningful relationships with investors and we are delighted that the efforts of our IR team, and in particular our Director of Investor Relations Helen Parris, are paying off.”
