A new investment manager has criticised the investment strategy of the global burger chain’s investor relations department.
In a blogpost on its website, the McDonalds investor centre said its chief financial officer had been “incredibly supportive of the team in terms of communication and communication support”.
“The team at McDonalds is one of the best in the industry and is working hard to build a strong relationship with our investors,” the company’s chief financial executive, Mark Thompson, wrote.
“They’ve done a fantastic job in recent weeks, and it’s really nice to see a senior financial officer who is as passionate about the company as I am.”
This is what I’m looking forward to when I leave McDonalds in a few years’ time.
“The investment manager, who declined to be named, said it was difficult to see why investors would want to work with the McDonald’s investment department.”
The investment team has shown a very strong communication and support with their investors, and that’s important for a company that has been a pioneer in the fast food industry.””
But I’m sure it would be an easy way to get a message across.”
The investment team has shown a very strong communication and support with their investors, and that’s important for a company that has been a pioneer in the fast food industry.
“It’s disappointing that the team haven’t been more forthcoming with the investor community.”
In the past, McDonalds has been very open with its investors about the progress of the company and its plans for growth.
“However, they’ve never been as open about the investment process.”
At the same time, I’d like to see them provide investors with some real clarity about the direction they’re taking the company.
“McDonalds has come under fire for poor communications, and for being in financial trouble after the UK government’s decision to pull out of the European Union.
Earlier this month, the company reported a loss of £3.8bn for the year, as it reported that it would lose as much as £500m in the UK, as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU.
The company said it expected the UK to be one of its biggest markets for sales in the next 12 months.”
Our focus will remain on our UK business and expanding in China, Mexico and other emerging markets,” the investment manager wrote.
