“A Double first for Trifast at the 2015 Investor Relations Society Awards”

Trifast plc has been recognised for a third year running, going one better this year, by receiving two awards from three category finalist nominations at the Best Practice Awards 2015 organised by the Investor Relations Society, (IRS).

Established nearly 30 years ago the IRS held this year’s premier event in its calendar at The Tower of London on Tuesday evening (24 November).  Hosted by the comedienne, Shappi Khorsandi, the evening was attended by over 500 professionals from across the IR, banking, stockbroking and media sectors.  They celebrated companies from the FTSE100 to the FTSE350/Small Cap AiM listed arena being honoured for continuously maintaining high standards of commitment to good communications and investor practices.
Sue Scholes, Chair of the IRS, commented: “This event celebrates one of the Society’s key reasons for existing – to promote best practice in investor relations.  Last year we streamlined the awards to reflect changes in the operating and regulatory environment that have led to the need for faster, clearer and more dynamic investor communications.   The 2015 IRS awards had over 150 high quality entries and the process competitive. Each was judged and scored against the IRS best practice guidelines.  Our winners all understand what differentiates their company and are able to communicate this clearly and consistently. Congratulations to them all.”
Delighted once again to hear the business had received such high accolades, Executive Chairman, Malcolm Diamond MBE added: “Firstly, I would like to congratulate all the finalists on attaining such high standards in their communications activities.  The IRS awards acknowledge across the board talented teams and individuals who strive to deliver a clear strategic approach to all its communications activities with stakeholders.  They also give everyone an opportunity to learn from their peers.”
He continued: “At TR we operate an ‘open door’ policy and we actively encourage dialogue with all investors to ensure we are delivering the right level and high standards of communications.  We continue to build on our knowledge bank and look to further enhance our activities and offering.  I also take this opportunity to thank my TR colleagues and our advisers who work in partnership.  Together we will continue to build on our success and deliver an ongoing IR strategy that matches or exceeds what our stakeholders want and expect from us.”
