IR benchmarking

The Value of IR

Knowing what your audience expects and values is priceless to IROs. With this in mind, IR Magazine has launched a new series of surveys aiming to get more insight into the viewpoints and requirements of the global investment community.

This inaugural report, which is based on responses from 421 portfolio managers, buy-side and sell-side analysts, uncovers how influential the quality of IR is to the investment community; how it effects share price valuation and how much the arrival and departure of individual IROs at a company factor into investment decisions and research coverage.

Upcoming reports in the series will determine what investors and analysts see as best practice IR in a range of topics, including investor engagement, IR websites, financial reporting, governance and disclosure.

By downloading this report, you will learn:

  • How much does IR influence investment decisions?
  • How much of a premium does good IR add to the share price?
  • How much of a discount to the share price is applied to less credible IR?
  • The effect of departure of IROs on investment decisions
  • The effect of individual reputation/background on investment interest
  • The importance of individual IROs’ qualities and experience

All data is segmented by region, market cap coverage and type of investment role.

This report is only available to IR Advanced subscribers
