CEO Awards

Last year Tim Martin of J D Wetherspoon won the award for Best CEO Capital Allocator at UK listed companies and we are honoured that he will joinWilliam N. Thorndike for a fireside chat and Q&A on the subject at the London Value Investor Conference on 24th May from 5.10pm, before meeting delegates for a beer in the networking area from 6pm.

The capital allocator awards were introduced in 2016 to recognise CEOs for the key talent of capital allocation.

On average, 70% of shareholder funds are retained in businesses and not paid out to shareholders. Effective deployment of retained capital therefore makes a profound difference to investor returns. To recognise this key talent, the London Value Investor Conference is launching two new Awards for the Public company CEOs with the best Capital Allocation record judged over multiple years:

The LVIC Award for Best Capital Allocator – UK listed companies
The LVIC Award for Best Capital Allocator – Global listed companies

The criteria used for judging good capital allocation discipline will include such things as:

  • Returning capital to shareholders either through dividends or share buybacks when these offer the best available return on capital
  • Saving shareholders money by controlling costs in an unusually disciplined way
  • Deploying growth capex with a keen focus on return on investment
  • Shutting down or selling poor return, non-core or loss-making businesses
  • Acquiring businesses or large assets at prices which deliver superior long term shareholder returns

This year the nominees are:

The LVIC Award for Best Capital Allocator – UK listed companies

Simon Wolfson – Next
Henry Engelhardt – Admiral
Ben Habib – First Property Group
John Burns – Derwent London
Mike Norris – Computacenter

The LVIC Award for Best Capital Allocator – Global listed companies

Michael O’Leary – Ryanair
Mark Leonard – Constellation Software
Howard Lutnick – BGC Partners
Ajay Piramal – Piramal Enterprises
William Stone – SS&C Technologies

The winners of the CEO awards will be decided by the awards committee and announced at the conference.
