You saw recently on the IR Insight blog that European investor relations departments vary in the granularity of contact information they reveal. Some go so far as to list investor relations officer cell phone numbers (such as Novo Nordisk), while others provide only departmental phone numbers and email addresses.

According to research by IR Insight, there are three clear leaders in the European investor relations community, with another seven that are close behind. Let’s take a look at the top 10 in terms of accessibility, based on research from last year’s IR Magazine Europe Awards:

  • Novo Nordisk
  • Sligro Food Group
  • Umicore
  • DSM
  • Laxness
  • RWE
  • Coloplast
  • Konecranes
  • Stora Enso
  • K+S

Novo Nordisk, Sligro Food Group and Umicore tied for the top spot, according to IR Insight rankings, followed by a tie for the next position involving the other companies listed. Interestingly, Novo Nordisk is among the 16 short-listed companies from last year that includes photos of their investor relations teams. Of the remaining 17, five don’t even provide names. Only three offer cell phone numbers, while two don’t provide phone numbers at all.
