IR benchmarking

Global IR Practice: IR Resources

IR Magazine investigates the team size, team structure and budgets of investor relations departments globally through a survey of more than 1,100 IR professionals.

Key benefits

  • Learn about the size and structure of IR teams around the world
  • Benchmark your IR budget against other companies
  • Find out how much IR teams spend on external services
  • View results broken down by region (North America, Europe and Asia), market cap (mega-cap, large cap, mid-cap and small cap) and sector
  • See how IROs would utilize additional resources 

Questions analysed in the survey

  • Does reporting to the CEO or CFO make a difference to the amount of resources available to IR?
  • Does an increased focus on institutional investment require greater IR resources?
  • How does the amount of sell-side coverage affect budgets and team sizes?
  • Do highly ranked IR teams have greater resources than lower or unranked ones?
