The gala dinner for the IR Magazine Awards – Canada, coming up on February 4, 2015, remains the Canadian IR community’s largest annual gathering. It is an evening of unforgettable celebration and networking for investor relations officers along with their senior managements, advisers and analysts.  

For the last quarter-century the IR Magazine Awards have honored excellence in investor relations around the world. Across North America, Europe and Asia, tens of thousands of analysts and investors have cast their votes and given their opinions in our investment community surveys. The result: vital benchmarking information on which companies do the best IR. 

In recent years the awards program has expanded to recognize more aspects of investor relations, particularly the contributions of senior management, as well as to identify the best IR by sector. In addition, the awards research now covers the perspective of winning companies in addition to the views of analysts and investors.

The IR Magazine South East Asia Conference & Awards 2011 took place in early December in Singapore. Delegates from companies all over Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines  had the chance to come together with their peers to discuss issues relating to investor relations, corporate governance, shareholder needs and the role of senior management in IR.

The conference

For this year’s event, we have been consulting with our recently formed Advisory Board for the IR Magazine South East Asia Conference to ensure the program meets the needs of people involved in managing the relationship between companies and the investment community in the region, and provides them with valuable and actionable advice.

The awards

Coupled with the half-day conference was our exclusive lunchtime awards ceremony. This annual event honors the South East Asian companies and individuals doing the best job of communicating with investors and analysts – in the opinion of those investors and analysts themselves.

The winners of the awards are identified by an investor perception study which is being carried out this year by Mary Maude Research, the firm that does the research underlying IR magazine’s US, Canada and Europe Awards. The research takes the form of hundreds of in-depth telephone interviews with individuals across Greater China and Singapore to find out not only which companies’ IR those investment professionals rate most highly, but also why.

Once the survey is complete, the award winners have been announced and the trophies presented, IR Insight, Cross Border’s research arm, publishes a report of the study. This report documents the interviews with the investment community together with additional material from the companies that have scored well. The aim here is to further investigate the particular challenges successful companies have faced, any new initiatives they may have adopted or changes they may have made to their IR team structure, their policies or their practice.

The end result of this rigorous research is a truly comprehensive study, from both the corporate and investor perspectives, of the state of investor relations in Greater China today. To order your copy of the Investor Perception Study, Asia 2011/2012 click here.

You’ve attended the IR Magazine Canada Awards and examined the Investor Perception Study, Canada 2011 to benchmark your company against others in the market. The next step is to gain insights you can use to get your company onto the stage next year. Attend the IR Magazine Canada Investor Perception Seminar to discuss IR trends and practices with your peers.

Take what you learn back to your company and develop a clear plan for managing shareholder and analyst communications this year. Use actionable insights to demonstrate the tangible value that effective IR can bring to your company. And who knows, next year, your company might just walk away with an award!

Format

In this highly interactive seminar, you will be able to participate in three panel discussions with other IROs from across Canada. Review the most significant issues you face as an IR professional in Canada, and learn how others are planning to overcome them. The seminar is participant-driven and highly focused.

Industry leaders will introduce each topic before participants break out into small roundtable groups to discuss the issues. Each session concludes with a room-wide discussion.

Switching tables at the start of each session ensures maximum opportunity to interact and network with all participants.

The three sessions are:

  • Benchmarking your IR program and measuring performance: setting strategy and goals, monitoring performance and using feedback and other tools to attain measurable success
  • View from the Street: a close look at best practices for improving marketing activities, managing risk, how to handle hedge funds and addressing the sell side’s involvement in IR activities
  • New challenges for Canada’s IROs: identifying the major trends (such as corporate governance, shareholder activism and proxy season trends) and understanding how to manage your company through them

A special fourth 'breakaway session' is in the works! Be sure to check back in a few weeks to see what hot topic we’ve come up with!

    The IR Magazine Awards program helps raise IR standards by benchmarking and recognizing the very best practitioners in the industry. Having successfully run the program in Ireland since the inaugural awards in 2002, we are delighted once again to host the event in Dublin in 2009.

During the lunch you will hear about the key trends identified from IR magazine’s Investor Perception Study, Ireland 2009, and Gervais Williams from Gartmore will provide us with his views on transparency, communications and guidance. The assembled guests will then have the opportunity to contribute to a Q&A session, which will be followed by the awards ceremony.

    For this new interactive format to work effectively, we have made the decision to limit the guest list to senior professionals only. As such, attendance for the 2009 event is by invitation only.

    The centerpiece of Cipriani Wall Street is the banking hall built for the National City Bank Corporation. Its 16,000 square feet are crowned by a 60-foot ceiling with a Wedgwood dome. The room owes its grandeur and dignity to the vast scale and to the luxurious gray marble, the coffered ceiling and the delicate mezzanine railings.

    Investor relations is booming in India. Rapid growth in the corporate sector is leading to an increasing appreciation of a discipline that ensures management and investors are as informed as possible. Despite the market corrections experienced in 2006, almost $5.5 bn is estimated to have been raised by around 80 IPOs that year, and 2007 is expected to continue the upward trend, with India remaining one of the hottest markets for new equity offerings.

    Increasingly sophisticated domestic investors are beginning to recognize the advantages of good investor relations and are demanding global standards of communication and interaction. Paralleled with an increasing thirst for international investment, these developments are putting unprecedented demands on the efforts of the corporate community.

    IR magazine is delighted to present its IR Magazine India Conference once again. The one-day conference will bring together India's investor relations community to debate and discuss the future of this increasingly important area. Delegates and sponsors alike will be given the chance to experience first-hand the incredible growth of investor relations across India.

    Our comprehensive one-day conference agenda reflects what is keeping the Indian investor relations professionals awake at night. A mixture of case studies by leading lights and interactive panel discussions will provide the ultimate forum for reflection, learning and discussion. Topics to be covered include:

    • Integrating IR into the corporate process
    • Creating value for pre-IPO investor relations
    • Exploring the impact of M&A activity
    • Managing investor expectations
    • Understanding regulatory developments facing transparency and disclosure
    • Local versus international listing: the pros and cons
    • Corporate governance and IR: developing a robust strategy
    • Dealing with the financial press
    • International investors: outlining IR expectations

     

    The conference will be attended by senior executives from a cross-sector of the Indian and international investor relations communities, including leading CEOs, MDs, CFOs and IROs. Through the unparalleled networking opportunities over this entire day of interaction, delegates will be able to establish themselves as key figures in the Indian IR community and benefit from developing new connections in this rapidly growing discipline.

    Журнал IR magazine и Объединение специалистов по связям с инвесторами (ОССИ) рады представить очередную российскую Конференцию по связям с инвесторами, которая состоится 21 февраля 2007 года в Москве. Однодневная конференция соберет российское IR-сообщество для обсуждения насущных вопросов, стоящих перед этой быстро развивающейся сферой деятельности.

    В настоящее время в России деятельность по связям с инвесторами переживает бум. Только в текущем году российские компании планируют получить более 4 млрд. долларов за счет размещения своих акций на Лондонской фондовой бирже. 2005 год показал, что российские компании увеличили свой капитал почти на 5 млрд. долларов благодаря выходу на IPO. Более чем 100 компаний объявили о своем желании выйти на IPO в ближайшем будущем. Все больше инвестиционных институтов начинают осознавать преимущества качественных связей с инвесторами и требуют руководствоваться мировыми стандартами коммуникации и взаимодействия. Одновременно с возрастающими потребностями в международных инвестициях от корпоративного сообщества ожидают беспрецедентных усилий.

    Конференция будет интересна как опытным IR-специалистам, так и представителям компаний, которые планируют выход на IPO в будущем. Доклады представителей регулирующих органов, бизнес-кейсы ведущих компаний и интерактивные круглые столы предоставят площадку для обмена мнениями, обучения и дискуссий. На конференции планируется охватить широкий круг тем: от основ организации работы IR-департамента до более сложных вопросов, таких как IR в период кризиса.
