IR-CUSTOMER MAGAZINE Q4

Exciting articles await you again in the 4th edition of our magazine on the subject of Investor Relations. This time new in the magazine: IR-News on the topics sustainability, institutional IR and IR professionals! A small extract from the magazine:

The Challenge of IR Strategy: The development of an IR strategy presents IR departments with new challenges every year: For example, is it precisely defined which tasks IR has to fulfill? What are the IR’s objectives? Where are the gaps between the objectives and the current situation? Which IR instruments can be used to achieve the IR goals? In what time frame and with what budget? And how can the achievement of IR goals be made measurable?

The area of responsibility of IR is growing and growing:The history of Investor Relations can look back on a 66-year time period. Its origins date back to 1953, the year in which the US company General Electric launched a communications program aimed specifically at private investors. Its name: Investor Relations (IR). Since then, a lot has happened in the area of responsibility. Today, communication with private in vestors is only a small part of our daily work.

Recent Developments in Sustainable Investment Funds: The topic of ‘sustainable investments’ is on the advance worldwide. According to the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance Review 2018, the international investment volume of sustainable investments grew by 34% between 2016 and 2018. With a good $14 trillion, Europe is ‘still’ the global class leader. But with growth rates of 38% within two years, the USA has caught up strongly and, with just under $12 trillion, is right on the heels of Europeans.

IR-CUSTOMER MAGAZINE Q3-2019

We are pleased about the third issue of our customer magazine.

Once again, there are exciting articles on all aspects of investor relations:

Activism & Investor Relations: Activist shareholders are on the advance. Where are they particularly active? What are their preferred targets? And how can companies prepare for such activist shareholders?

MiFID II & Its Impact On Research & Roadshows: In the run-up to MiFID II, there have been numerous forecasts as to how Research & Corporate Access would develop from a corporate perspective. According to a recent study, more than 330 European companies lost their sell-side research completely as a result of MiFid II. In contrast, the number of buy-side analysts has increased. The sell side is struggling with the effects of MiFid II. How do companies deal with these changed market conditions?

Retail IR – An Underestimated Component of IR: Most companies tend to focus their IR work on institutional investors, portfolio managers, asset managers and equity analysts. Nevertheless, retail investors can have a significant impact on the share price, especially for smaller companies. The information behaviour of small investors differs considerably from that of professional players such as portfolio managers and equity analysts. What does a good retail IR programme look like? And which information channels should be used?

IR-CUSTOMER MAGAZINE Q2-2019

In the second issue of our customer magazine you can look forward to new informative articles on all aspects of Investor Relations:

Investor Relations & Compliance: Compliance with statutory capital market regulations is becoming increasingly widespread. And more and more often, IROs have the task of avoiding precisely such sanctions – i.e. ensuring compliance with the rules. How can this be achieved? A compliance management system can help to maintain an overview here.

Measuring Investor Relations: It is undisputed that IROs play a significant role in the growth and success of listed companies. In return, corresponding returns on their work are expected. This raises the question of the extent to which investor relations contributes to the achievement of corporate goals. How can the performance of IROs be evaluated internally and made measurable?

Digital Investor Relations: While a few years ago the investment community was reluctant to include digital media and social media in its approach, today it can hardly escape digitalization. Which digital communication channels do companies use? Will the relevance of digital media increase?
