Extel provides the most relevant capital market survey for Europe: the by far largest participation from investment professionals around the world and the most accurate methodology ensure a reliable feedback on the quality of investor relations activities.

  • Biggest participation: 17,000 investment professionals from all over the world (14,000 investors; 2,500 analysts) have cast their vote. The number of voters in the Extel Survey is more than 8x as large as the second largest survey (Institutional Investor: 870 investors, 1110 analysts) and more than 20x as large as the 3rd largest survey (IR-Magazine, 700 participants in total).
  • Most accurate methodology: Extel is the only capital market survey where the votes are weighted to reflect the relative importance and influence of participating firms. Investors are weighted by assets under management. Analysts are weighted by their reputation which is measured by their ranking in the Extel Survey of the previous year.

The leading position of the Extel Survey is underpinned by the fact that a number of European national investor relations associations have chosen Extel Survey data to be the basis for their respective national IR awards (DIRK form Germany, Investor Relations Society from United Kingdom and CLIFF from France).

Institutional Investor - All Europe Executive Team: “Most Honoured Company”

Deutsche Telekom was ranked as winner in every category at this year's Institutional Investor All-Europe Executive Team ranking. Never before, Deutsche Telekom has achieved a better result in the ranking.

Within the telecommunication sector Deutsche Telekom was decorated as the Most Honoured Company, the overall winner of all categories.

An overview of the Institutional Investor All Europe Executive Team can be found here.

In total, 755 portfolio manager and buy-side analysts, and 909 sell-side Analysts voted across 31 sectors. Voters are asked to nominate up to four companies for best CEO, CFO, Investor Relations Professional, Investor Relations Program and analyst days in Europe

A business that earns a top-three position in one of the four categories is deemed an Honoured Company. To earn the designation of Most Honored Company, it must achieve two or more top-three appearances.

Rank is determined by weighted score wherein each first-place position is worth three points;second place, two;and third place, one. When a tie exists in the weighted score, companies are ordered according to the number of ranked positions they receive in their industry sectors. Beneath that, up to four companies that excel in each of eight IR attributes should be identified. These IR attributes include categories such as providing access to senior management, degree of financial disclosure and so on. Responses to these questions are aggregated to produce an overall rank for each company

To be eligible for the ranking, a company must be incorporated in Europe and traded on a corresponding European exchange. Furthermore a minimum vote count must be achieved.

Analysts and investors were surveyed from October until December 2015 on how they assess the investor relations efforts of European listed companies. The results have been published in March 2016.

Why Awards are important to us
It is very difficult to measure the quality of investor relations. The shareprice performance depends on many factors that are independent of the quality of the investor relatons efforts. And investor relations makes no revenue or profit on its own, which could be a measure for success. 
That is where surveys and expert rankings come into play. They are a key means for monitoring the success of our work and complement the direct feedback we continually receive. They give us background on customer satisfaction and provide input for our quest to continuously improve.
For us, the primary target is not to win awards, but to provide the best investor relations experience across all sectors in Europe. Please help us to further improve our services. We appreciate any feedback.
