September 14, 2021 – Institutional Investor’s ranking based on votes by international investors and investment banks placed ALROSA among the top three public metals and mining companies in four individual categories. The annual ranking considers publicly traded companies from the EMEA region.
The 2021 ranking was based on a poll of the global investment community, including portfolio managers and analysts who assessed CEOs, CFOs, IR professionals and teams, Investor Day events held by companies, corporate IR programmes, among other areas.
In the metals and mining sector, Institutional Investor evaluated publicly traded companies from both Russia and the entire EMEA region. Based on the poll results, ALROSA took the leading positions in four categories and came second in the consolidated rating. Sergey Takhiev and the IR Team were ranked in the top three in the IR Professional and IR Team categories, respectively. ALROSA's IR Programme and the Company's Investor Day 2021 both ranked second in the respective categories.
Commenting on the results, Maria Gordon, Senior Independent Director of ALROSA's Supervisory Board and Head of the Audit Committee, said: “For the third consecutive year, ALROSA's team has taken the lead in the rankings for the highly competitive metals and mining sector. This demonstrates not only the high quality of corporate governance and treatment of minority shareholders, but also the stability and consistency of our approach. Last year was challenging for everyone, including the diamond industry. ALROSA consistently securing leading positions showcases that both the financial community and minority shareholders appreciate the company’s efforts both during and after the pandemic, as well as the dialogue it managed to establish despite the challenging market conditions.”
