L’Oréal holds a very strong position in the 2001 ranking of the "World’s Most Respected Companies" published by the Financial Times. In particular for the company’s ability to create shareholder value.
Fund managers interviewed by Price Waterhouse Coopers for the English daily paper ranked L’Oréal 5th worldwide amongst companies that create the most value for shareholders. The group is also the only French company included in the list of the 30 worldwide groups that are most respected by directors for their ability to create wealth for their shareholders.
Amongst the reasons for the interest that the group attracts, the London daily newspaper noted that the L’Oréal group is considered as having been “very stable and constant over the years”, and that it has “a good sustainable business model”.
