We were pleased to see the latest edition of 'How does it stack up?' in Investors Chronicle this week.
It's a great feature, which analyses the research in depth, and discusses our top 10, our methodology behind the ranking and the opinion pieces found within the report, written by our investor engagement team.
Here's an extract from the article:
Radley Yeldar (RY)... put together its 2018 edition of 'How does it stack up?', A review of FTSE 100 narrative reporting'.

Taking the top spot was Land Securities (LAND), which RY credited for having done "a lot of work" on its annual report, particularly the remuneration report, which was deemed "more accessible". Runner-up Mondi (MNDI) was praised for its sustainability report, which clearly identified the company’s commitments and performance measures. And IC Tip of the Year BT Group (BT.A) was credited for its reporting on resources and relationships – an area RY claims many companies fall short on.
