The industry’s most outstanding communicators are recognised in these annual awards.
At its annual dinner held on Thursday 8 June 2017, the Association of Investment Companies (AIC) announced this year’s winners of the Shareholder Communication Awards. The AIC developed these awards to demonstrate the industry’s commitment to providing excellent communications. The awards recognise those member investment companies and their managers that stand out by using effective communication methods to keep shareholders informed.
YFM received the award for Best Report and Accounts (VCTs) for British Smaller Companies VCT 2 plc.
The judges felt the winning entry was very strong and they were impressed by the clear explanation of its holdings and key financial details.
This year’s independent panel of judges was chaired by Charles Cade, Head of Investment Companies Research at Numis Securities. The other judges on the panel were: Tim Cockerill, Investment Director at Rowan Dartington; Moira O’Neill, Editor of Moneywise magazine and David Stevenson, freelance financial journalist and commentator.
