Fortune Magazine has named Visa as one of the top 50 World's Most Admired Companies in a list published on their website. In addition, Visa ranked No. 1 in the "Consumer Credit Card and Related Services" industry category.
In its annual survey, Fortune asks executives and analysts to rate companies in their industry in nine categories, from long-term investment value to social responsibility. Visa placed first in seven of the nine categories.
Fortune's Most Admired list started with the Fortune 1,000—the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue—and non-U.S. companies in Fortune's Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more. Fortune’s survey partner, Korn Ferry Hay Group, then selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry, surveying a total of 652 companies from 30 countries.
