Delta Lloyd 2012 annual report shortlisted for Sijthoff prize
Insurer Delta Lloyd’s 2012 annual report, written by Stampa, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Henri Sijthoff prize for outstanding financial reporting.
The Sijthoff prize is the highest recognition of financial reporting excellence in the Netherlands. It is awarded annually by financial daily Het Financieele Dagblad to companies in three categories: those listed on the Amsterdam Exchange Index (AEX); midcap and small-cap companies; and non-listed companies.
“Annual reports are too often cluttered with cookie-cutter corporate texts. It’s great to see this recognition of our efforts to write a clear, accessible and highly informative 2012 annual report for Delta Lloyd,” says Stampa director Abigail Levene, who heads up the agency’s Benelux corporate content practice.
Delta Lloyd was shortlisted from 25 others in the midcap category. Nominees are judged in areas such as clarity of writing, transparency of information about the company, its strategy, investor relations, press releases, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. Online communication and social media are also increasingly important.
Amsterdam-headquartered Delta Lloyd offers insurance, pensions, investing and banking service to consumers, small and large companies, multinationals and pension funds.
