America’s Best Analyst Days Champions 131 Companies

A successful analyst day (or capital markets day, as these events are sometimes called) provides opportunities for fund managers and sell-side analysts to learn more about the executive teams of the companies they follow, their goals and strategies, and allows these financial professionals to achieve a greater insight into the dynamics of the businesses on which they report.

Hosting such a get-together can be a daunting task, and not all companies do it well. To find out which ones outperform their peers, Institutional Investor asked buy- and sell-side participants in the 2015 All-America Executive Team survey — our exclusive annual ranking of the nation’s best corporate leaders and investor outreach programs — to tell us which of the entities they cover host the most constructive analyst days. We received responses from 1,376 investment professionals at 522 financial services firms. Respondents from the buy side work at firms that collectively manage an estimated $6.2 trillion in U.S. equities.
