ABAF/BVFA Awards 2019

In 2019, the Award ceremony took place at the KBC Group headquarters in Brussels. In the build-up to the proclamation of the 2019 laureates, all present were entertained by Mrs. Claire Lavery, Executive Director Asia & Europe at Rivel Research Group. Mrs. Lavery shared insights from Rivel Research market surveys of (international) buy-side representatives on relevant issues like Mifid II, Shareholder Activism, ESG, Passive Investing and Investor Relations Practices.

And the winner is...
