e.com - ReportWatch: What’s in the names?
e.com
e.com (or e-com) specializes in report input, evaluation, analysis and benchmarking. Our goal is to help our customers improve their “reporting bottom lines”, by enhancing report value, reflecting company value, showing investor value, and increasing stakeholder value.

e.com has developed an international, independent, integrated, content-based and competitive approach to assess and compare annual reports -in print and online- as well as other investor information instruments and market communication tools. Our founders, staff and network have operated in 30 countries and consulted for 130-plus corporate clients on more than 400 reporting operations and customized reviews, from Amsterdam to Tokyo, Stockholm to Vancouver; from Greater London to Illinois to Hong Kong. Our clientele mainly consists of CFOs, IR officers, CC managers, report teams of listed blue chips. It also includes spin-offs, IPOs, consultants, analysts, design agencies and -private or institutional- investors.

A spin-off from The Enterprise Group (est. 1986, inc. 1990, liq. 1999), e.com is now a U.S.-U.K. venture. With head office in London, and team and network partners based in or near major financial centers in Britain, Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, e.com is in the loop on reporting standards, requirements, and best practices. The company is independent and not affiliated with any bank, government, accounting, auditing or rating institution or professional organization.

ReportWatch
ReportWatch is the trademark -and the website- for the report monitoring, scanning, scoring and rating process that results in the Annual Report on Annual Reports. Created in 1996 within The Enterprise Group, and based both on e.com’s internal desk research and an external rating panel of reporting specialists, this survey of annual reports’ best practice is often regarded as the most comprehensive, international and authoritative survey on annual reports.

Financial sector annual reports

Evaluation - Competition

Annual reports from the financial sector are no longer selected for the Annual Report on Annual Reports competition for consistency, comparability and credibility reasons. That does not imply that there are not (sometimes very) good and improved reports in the sector. On a customized basis, e.com keeps on evaluating and benchmarking financial sector reports.
