Searcys at The Gherkin, London, UK
Globally, targeting new investors is the top priority for IR teams, with 75 percent putting it among their top three objectives for 2018 and 37 percent saying it is the number one goal they want to achieve – if they had more resources.
With Mifid II radically changing the game and IR teams shrinking in size, how can IROs turn big data into actionable intelligence to navigate key IR activities? What do IROs need to know to achieve their top three IR objectives of targeting new investors, enhancing engagement with existing shareholders and increasing international share ownership?
Join heads of IR, IR Magazine and Q4 as we share real-life examples on how you can turn data into action.
