IR Magazine Webinar – Small Cap IR
Q&A with the investment community

Thursday, April 12, 2018

10.30am - 11.30am BST, Online

About the webinar

As Mifid II exacerbates the pressure on small and micro-cap firms to be noticed by investors and analysts, listen to this recording of a Q&A session with the investment community on what makes for effective IR and how this shifting landscape makes it important for IROs to be prepared to meet these changes.

On this webinar, we discussed what the buy side likes (and what it doesn’t):

  • Investment trends: Top questions from investors for small and micro-cap issuers
  • What makes for effective IR at a time like this? Where can IR add value?
  • Role of research in a post-Mifid II world – how can smaller firms ensure coverage?
  • How does IR balance what the buy side wants with what the sell side wants?
  • Making small companies attractive to institutions: Targeting tips – which events work best?
  • Compliance no-nos: What not to do, what puts investors off and transparency
  • Critical decisions and inflection points: Making key decisions that will impact investments and business value

The discussion was followed by a short awards ceremony to recognize those leading the way in IR excellence at small-cap companies. You can find more details on our Small Cap Awards here.
