    IR Magazine Webinar – Data-driven investor outreach
    IR Magazine and Nasdaq Recorded: May 22 2019 61 mins
    When Mifid II came into effect last January, it caused a significant disruption of the investor marketing landscape. There are reports that the sell side is organizing fewer conferences, the buy side is more interested in direct engagement than in the past, and IR teams are being tasked with playing a more active role in their company’s investor marketing efforts without bigger budgets or larger teams.

    In this webinar, industry experts will discuss the following talking points:
    •How to use new data tools and techniques to understand how often you should be on the road
    •How to find out which investors you should be targeting
    •How you should be approaching those investors
    •Which meetings you should be bringing your senior management to

  • IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary Webinar – ESG for investor relations officers
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and S&P Global Recorded: Apr 23 2019 56 mins
    Investor interest in ESG issues continues to grow. Evidence is mounting that environmental and social issues can be financially material to business performance. Companies are responding to these market signals, with more than 85 percent of S&P 500 companies now reporting on their ESG and sustainability performance in some form.

    Although climate risk and diversity continue to be top issues of interest to investors, there are hundreds of ESG metrics that companies are being scored on. While ESG roadshows may be the norm in Europe, they are just starting to gain traction with US companies. How should investor relations officers (IROs) prepare for this new wave of investor appetite?

    •Why do IROs need to create a compelling narrative on ESG performance that is aligned with the business strategy, and what should that narrative include?
    •Why should IROs prioritize and focus on the most material ESG issues to the business, and how do you determine what those are?
    •What are some best practice examples of strategies and tactics that leading companies are using to build capacity within IR and corporate governance departments to communicate with investors on ESG issues?
    •How are companies engaging with investors on ESG issues to competitively differentiate business performance on ESG risk management and governance

  • IR Magazine Webinar – Rise of passive investing
    IR Magazine Webinar – Rise of passive investing
    IR Magazine and Q4 Recorded: Apr 4 2019 43 mins
    The rise of passive investing has been one of the defining themes of asset management over the past decade. While this significant shift from active to passive investment has sparked wide-ranging research and commentary about its effects on the wider economy, it is time to assess how IR teams globally can have any impact on the decision-making process of a passive investor.
    We will explore how these index-based investors make decisions, how they perceive a company’s equity story and how an IR team can stand out in an increasingly data-driven world.
    We will explore the need for greater disclosure around corporate governance policy, board structure and sustainability policy in order to be included in indexes.
    • Understanding passive investment behavior: The decision-making process and impact on your stock
    • Importance of ESG: Engaging passive funds through governance channels to drive shareholder value and prevent activist situations
    • Resource check: Evaluating return on time invested in proactively targeting passive investors. How does this change how you work with active fund managers?
    • Stock up your toolkit: What skill-set should you be looking to add to your team to get proactive with passive?
    • Understanding the original thesis behind an index and understanding why your stock is, or isn’t, included in it

    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and Intelligize Recorded: Mar 21 2019 53 mins
    How your business operates within a broad societal context is core to the longevity of your business. Larry Fink’s 2019 letter to CEOs highlights that profits and purpose are inextricably linked. When looking at ESG issues, social impacts are often lumped in with environmental and governance issues – but investors are increasingly seeking deeper information about a company’s social impacts as a stand-alone consideration.

    A new generation of retail investors is increasingly concerned about topics like executive remuneration, board diversity or social and human rights issues throughout a company’s supply chain. New index products have appeared that screen for firms with good practices. Furthermore, the pool of institutional investors that integrate ESG factors into their investment and voting decisions is rapidly growing, as is the expectation for companies to incorporate a social narrative into their equity story, and disclose information on social factors – something that is notoriously hard to quantify.

    IR Magazine Webinar – Why cannabis firms could be the next big thing
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg Recorded: Mar 14 2019 46 mins
    The growing tide of support behind the legalization of cannabis – whether for medical or recreational use – is already transforming the face of the capital markets in North America. Where the drug was once bought and sold on street corners, lawmakers are now waking up to the potential benefits of marijuana – and the lucrative market the plant is steadily creating.

    Once the preserve of small ‘mom-and-pop’ operations, cannabis is rapidly becoming a multi-billion dollar industry, with both its own players – the likes of Canopy Growth Corp, Tilray and Aurora Cannabis – and a growing trend of large consolidating brands moving into the space. In fact, the industry could be worth $100 bn within 10 years, according to recent estimations.

    In this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Bloomberg, expert panelists will dive into the trends that define the cannabis industry, the wave of state approvals that could lead the way to federal legalization, and the implications the blooming industry has for the future role of IR.

    IR Magazine and Q4 Recorded: Jan 24 2019 52 mins
    Much has been made in recent months of the way Mifid II is likely to place barriers in the way of successfully setting up non-deal roadshows (NDRs), or roadshow meetings, with investors. The expectation is that roadshows will not only involve more figurative legwork to get up and running but also more physical legwork – involving longer periods of travel time as sell-side assistance with scheduling meetings becomes rarer.

    In this webinar, speakers are invited to discuss in detail how to use what IROs already know and combine it with the new tools and services filling the space left by the sell side to ensure a sufficient number of meaningful interactions still take place. Speakers will explain best practices for drafting target client lists and outsourcing to the best alternative brokerages in the market. The aim of the discussion will ultimately be to unpack how IROs can embrace and own their newly center-stage role in the current environment without becoming overwhelmed and overburdened.

    IR Magazine Webinar - Understanding ETFs and indexes: What do you need to know?
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg Recorded: Dec 13 2018 41 mins
    Are exchange-traded funds (ETFs) a danger to the stock market? Or a natural progression driven by the needs and wants of institutional investors and their clients? One thing is certainly true: inflows into ETFs, index funds and similar products are increasing month on month. In April 2018 alone, passive US equity funds took $18.2 bn of inflows, while active funds suffered $11.4 bn in outflows.

    In a bid to understand this investment discipline, this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Blooomberg, will aim to find answers to these questions and more with the aid of our panel of expert speakers.

    This webinar will look at:
    •What ETFs are, how they work and why inflows are increasing
    •Understanding index investor behavior, and whether the term ‘passive’ is accurate
    •The role of ESG and other themes for passive fund managers
    •The tools you can use to examine the investment decisions made by passive funds

  • Corporate Secretary Webinar – Making the most of the proxy statement summary
    Corporate Secretary Webinar – Making the most of the proxy statement summary
    Corporate Secretary and Labrador Recorded: Nov 6 2018 37 mins
    Investors are demanding that proxy statements include a greater range of information. In turn, companies need to disclose that information – and tell their story – in the most effective way. One solution is to create a ‘next-generation proxy summary’ that includes an extended summary spelling out the key information investors need. This can be used as part of the proxy statement and as a stand-alone document.

    Our panel of experts will discuss how governance teams can make the best use of the extended summary in managing relationships with shareholders. Topics for discussion will include:
    - What information should the extended summary include? What do investors want, and how should governance teams research what this is?
    - What are some of the new best ways to present that information?
    - How can governance and investor relations (IR) teams work best together and with other functions (the board, HR, IT, management and outside vendors) in preparing the extended summary?
    - How can governance and IR teams use the summary during the approach to the AGM and outside of proxy season? How can it best be delivered as a stand-alone document?
    - What is the best way to get feedback on your summary from investors to improve it for the following year?
