Best Managed Companies Survey 2015: Methodology
Euromoney's annual Best Managed Company ranking is based on a survey of market analysts at leading banks and research institutes around the world. Polling took place from February 26 to the July 3.
The questionnaire was divided into the following regions:
Central & Eastern Europe
Respondents were asked to nominate the top three listed companies in each of the following categories:
Most convincing and coherent business strategy
Best system of corporate governance
Most accessible senior management
Most transparent financial accounts
Best for shareholder value
Most useful and informative website
Most improved performance
Best newly listed
Votes were then aggregated (with the exception of ‘Most improved performance’ and ‘Best newly listed’) to create a table of ‘Overall best managed companies’ in each region. This table is then cut by country and industry sector.
Respondents were also asked to nominate their top three financial exchanges and top three unlisted companies in each region.
The final section of the questionnaire asked respondents to name the top three treasurers in each region according to their communication, knowledge of their own business and market knowledge.
