Nearly 150 firms were named Most Honored Companies in Institutional Investor’s 2020 All-America Executive Team.
Some 1,700 money managers, buy-side analysts, and sell-side researchers voted to determine the best CEOs, CFOs, investor relations professionals, and investor relations companies across 44 industry sectors. Companies which received a top-three score in at least two of these categories — from buy-side and/or sell-side respondents — earned the Most Honored designation.
This year, just one company swept all four categories in both the buy-side and sell-side surveys: consumer finance company Synchrony Financial.
In addition to the main ranking, II also compiled a leaderboard for small- and mid-cap companies which ranks the best executive teams for companies with market capitalizations under $10 billion.
Separate awards were also given to the companies with the best analyst days, best ESG/SRI reporting, and best corporate governance.
