The Award for Best Financial Communication, which BVFA/ABAF has been presenting annually since 1957, aims to recognize excellence in communication with the financial community. A professional jury, consisting of members of the investor associations and local and international financial analysts, choses the winner from 50 Belgian listed companies. In the selection process, they thoroughly screen and give a score to all aspects of financial communication: non-financial information (strategy, solutions and services, risks, etc.), financial information (annual report, press releases, financial statements and notes) and investor relations.
Transparent, constructive and reliable communication!
Barco had the highest overall score this year, thus winning the award. “We are absolutely delighted to take home gold,” says Carl Vanden Bussche, Vice President Investor Relations at Barco. “This award is truly a tribute to the entire team: our Investor Relations team and our Corporate Communications and Finance colleagues. Over the past several years, we have dedicated our efforts to getting Barco’s equity story more crisp and concise. Moreover we have been investing in being a reliable partner for our internal and external stakeholders and in building constructive relationships with the financial community. We’re happy to see that the jury noticed how we have raised the bar in several fields. Of course, this award is not the end of our journey. We are committed to continue strengthening and improving our financial communications and investor relations services.”
