    Building a trusted rapport with their CEO and CFO is crucial for IROs, who act as advisers on company messaging and capital markets, and whose credibility with investors and analysts is based on being in the loop.

    Depending on their company’s culture and their C-suite’s level of buy-in for IR, some IROs may need to make a case for senior management to dedicate time to roadshows, investor conferences or interaction during site visits. They should also strive to make productive use of a CEO’s or CFO’s time spent on IR.

    From a careers perspective, IR is increasingly considered a must-have experience for finance professionals wanting to step up to the CFO role.

    A group of experts will discuss fundamental issues on the IR/C-suite relationship, including:

    •Tips for IROs on building a stronger relationship founded on trust
