Mapping investor behavior
Breakfast briefing with IR Magazine & Q4

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Grand Hôtel Stockholm, Sweden

How technology is changing everyday lives of modern IROs

Buy-side analysts have benefited from algorithms and quantitative models for some time, enhancing the speed and accuracy of their decision-making. How can IROs use similarly advanced technology to further understand their investor base? With Mifid II radically changing the game, how much faith can you put in Big Data, automation and predictive analytics, and how much time would that free up to spend on strategic priorities?

To find out, IR Magazine & Q4 teamed up for this briefing.

What we discussed:

  • Learning from the advances made on the buy side: How to use algorithms and quantitative analytics to measure peer performance and improve targeting
  • Understanding market trends and monitoring shareholder activity – which key indicators can you track to detect a potential activist threat?
  • Is what you’re saying resonating? Assessing your company messaging strategy and whether it’s generating positive market sentiment
  • Gaining deeper and actionable insight into stock performance: How predictive analytics can help IROs forecast more accurately and answer tough questions
  • To think is human, to automate is divine: What day-to-day tasks can be automated to free up time for higher-value efforts?
  • What does the future hold? How far away are new strides in automation, artificial intelligence and technology for IR?
