The winners of the 2018 Australasian Investor Relations Awards were announced last night at the Annual AIRA Best Practice Investor Relations Awards & Gala Dinner.

The Australasian Investor Relations Awards recognise listed entities that have excelled in Investor Relations over the year. Winners are determined based on voting from domestic and international equities analysts and fund managers.

AIRA CEO, Ian Matheson said, “Investor relations is transforming with; the implementation of MiFID II, markets becoming more global, a greater percentage of investment becoming passive, individuals taking greater control of their investments, and a greater focus on Environmental, Social & Governance issues. These changes provide significant opportunity for today’s IR professionals.  AIRA’s Best Practice IR Awards provide acknowledgement from the market of companies who are doing a great job!”

In addition to the listed entities awards AIRA’s has four sell-side awards, to recognise corporate access and sales teams within investment banks and stockbroking firms who assist companies access and connect with investors around the world. These award winners were determined based on voting from investor relations professionals from listed-entities.
