IR Magazine Forum – Small Cap

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

In-person event: AIG offices, New York

Maximize your potential

The opportunity for small-cap companies in the current environment is extensive. Those investor relations teams that can attract the attention of both institutional and retail investors and build analyst coverage will be set up for long-term success.

The IR Magazine Forum – Small Cap aims to help public companies stand out in the capital markets by overcoming the time and resource pressures that smaller companies face.

Join over a hundred CEOs, CFOs and IROs in New York on September 20 to discuss how to effectively target investors, stand out in the financial press, build analyst coverage and engage retail investors in today’s macro environment.

Holders of the NIRI IRC® credential can earn up to 4 professional development units (PDUs) per day. IRC-credentialed speakers may also earn PDUs. More information is available at

Topics and themes

With the help of CFOs, heads of IR and investors, we will discuss the most significant issues impacting small-cap public companies and their relationship with shareholders. The broad themes for discussion this year include:

  • The impact of market forces on small-cap companies
  • What the buy-side expects of small company IR activities
  • How to engage an increasingly pressured sell-side
  • Top tips for financial PR
  • Attracting retail investors
  • Doing more with fewer resources
  • Running a strategic IR function
