Seasoned IROs discuss how to have fun on the road
At a glance
Although Sovereign Wealth Funds could be considered to be, in theory, the perfect investor target for IR teams, there have been historical hurdles to engagement, including external/internal asset management strategies, scant public ownership disclosure and less visibility at the traditional investor meeting places.
To combat these and other historical barriers, a positive recent trend across several SWFs has included significant outreach and direct corporate access programs, which has led to growing awareness and visibility into the SWF community.
With this trend of increased engagement in mind, Ipreo collaborated with the investment team at the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority to provide issuers with a view into the institution’s investment strategy and recent moves to bring an increasing amount of capital under in-house active management.
Ipreo provides market intelligence, data, and workflow solutions to all participants in the global capital markets, including sell-side banks, publicly traded companies, and buy-side institutions.
