In a challenging time for investors with regulation, passive/active shifts, and a challenging geopolitical landscape, it’s more important than ever for corporations to be actively and thoughtfully engaged with investors to ensure their message and strategy is well understood. This recognition is a great reflection of the efforts Aiman and team have undertaken in the last 18-24 months."
