This prestigious annual event is voted on by over 50 prominent financial services organisations, where equities analysts from both fund managers and brokerage houses score the S&P/ASX200 stocks they cover across 25 categories. The scores are then used to create league tables, with the idea being to provide a feedback mechanism between the investment community and the S&P/ASX200 to enhance market efficiency.
