Voted Awards

The Voted Awards recognise excellence in individual and team investor relations, and we are delighted one again to be working in partnership with Institutional Investor, who have helped us to address a larger audience and voting universe comprising the buy- and sell-sides.

2021 marks the sixth year that Institutional Investor will conduct a thorough perception survey on behalf of the UK IR Society. The results of this survey give us the shortlists and eventual winners of the much anticipated ‘Voted Awards’.

Global buy-side and sell-side professionals evaluate the quality of Investor Relations and vote in the categories for ‘Best Newcomer to IR’, ‘Best Investor Relations Officer’ and ‘Best Overall Company IR’. Corporates and Investor Relations Officers in the UK, in turn, share their views to assess ‘Best Investor Engagement’ by investment management companies.

Nominations and voting for the Voted Awards is open until 7 May 2021. Buy-side and Sell-side professionals vote through the voting platform and we encourage our corporate members to remind their buy-side and sell-side contacts to vote. Corporates vote for sell-side and buy-side firms through the Corporate Insights & Verification (CIV) form - every IR team member gets a personalised CIV link however only one co-ordinated submission per company is necessary.

If you have not received your link or have any questions please contact Amani Korayeim at Institutional Investor -
