INVESTORS’ DARLING has been assessing the capital market communications of the largest listed companies in Germany since 2014. In its function as a contest, INVESTORS’ DARLING picks up on current trends in capital market communications and can thus award state-of-the-art companies. With the help of the contest, companies can identify these trends and further develop their corporate reporting. After all, good financial communication helps to reduce uncertainty on the capital market and create credibility.

With this in mind, the presentation will address the following questions:

  • What is the importance of capital market communication and how does INVESTORS’ DARLING contribute to it?
  • What methodology is the contest based on?
  • What changes and adjustments will there be in INVESTORS’ DARLING 2022?
  • What trends will companies have to adapt to in reporting over the next few years? What are the current fields of action?
  • How can companies gain a competitive advantage through their financial communications?
