Euromoneys ninth Latin American company ranking is based on a survey of market analysts at banks and research institutes in Latin America.
Respondents were asked to nominate the top-five listed companies in each of the main survey categories, bearing in mind market strength, profitability, growth potential, quality of management and earnings. Respondents were also asked to nominate the five best group treasurers, bearing in mind communication, knowledge of own business and market knowledge as well as their top-five financial exchanges in Latin America.
Points are awarded on a scale of 5:4:3:2:1 for first-, second-, third-, fourth- and fifth-place nominations respectively. Results are presented as a percentage of total points received in each category, together with the number of companies that received points in each category.
We received 51 valid responses from analysts in 2014, nominating 192 companies across various sectors in Latin America.
