Thomson Reuters Voted #1 Investor Relations Services Provider Globally and in All Regions by IR Magazine 2012 Global IRO Survey
NEW YORK– Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, was named the favorite Investor Relations (IR) services provider in IR Magazine’s 2012 global survey of IR officers. Thomson Reuters was ranked the top IR services provider globally, as well as in North America, Asia and Europe individually.
The IR Magazine annual survey of investor relations practices around the world now includes a section regarding IROs’ favorite service providers. Respondents were asked to outline their top three providers, and explain why they use them, and why they like them so much. Thomson Reuters scored the highest in all regions, accumulating 322 points; almost double that of second place runner up. The complete survey article can be found at the Inside Investor Relations website.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be named the favorite IR services provider of companies worldwide,” said William Haney, global head of IR Services at Thomson Reuters. Haney added that “Exceeding our clients’ expectations is and will remain our top priority, and to have our clients validate our performance through IR Magazine's survey is a real honor. It also gives us confidence that our investments are paying off. In fact, we are working on several exciting enhancements to our mobile and desktop products, and investing in innovative tools for our IR Advisory analysts, so we can help our clients do their job even faster and more effectively. The solutions we launched last year were very well received and we look forward to rolling out our latest enhancements throughout 2013.”
In 2012, Thomson Reuters introduced IR Mobile, the industry’s first web app focused on enabling investor relations professionals to manage their investor interactions, create and edit events, enter meeting notes and access shareholder information directly from their iPad, iPhone and Android.
