How roadshow practices differ by region

As we prepare the 2017 IR Magazine Global Roadshow Report, some headline findings from last year’s edition

Each year IR Magazine investigates roadshow practices globally in our flagship Global Roadshow Report, looking at areas such as travel locations, broker partners and senior management involvement.

We have now completed our survey for the 2017 version of the report and are starting to piece together the findings. While this year’s report is still in the works, here we revisit some of the headline findings from the 2016 edition.

Below are some key roadshow stats for three regions: North America, Europe and Asia. As can be seen, European companies were the kings of the road in 2016, chalking up more roadshows and days on the road than companies in other regions. 

The most-visited cities for each region were unsurprisingly the key financial centers of New York, London and Hong Kong. The top brokers were determined by asking respondents which brokers they traveled with over the previous year, and ranking them by number of mentions. The report also quizzed companies on which broker provided their favorite roadshow over the last 12 months.

Abu Dhabi Investment Authority

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.
