JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, and Bausch Health lead corporate debt issuers in Institutional Investor’s first annual Global Fixed-Income Investor Relations ranking.

More than 1,300 bond and credit specialists from over 650 asset management firms voted for their favorite fixed-income investor relations teams worldwide and within the U.S. and Canada, Europe, and Asia.

These respondents ranked the top issuers of investment-grade and high-yield debt globally across nine industry sectors. They evaluated investor relations teams based on five attributes: balance sheet transparency, communication of strategy shifts, clarity of debt covenant calculations and other provisions, responsiveness to questions on debt ratings, and engagement with bondholders.

Just three companies earned No. 1 rankings in both the high-yield and investment-grade categories: JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, and Bausch Health.
