IR Magazine Webinar ‒ Know Your Investor Better: An ETF Primer for IROs

Exchange-traded funds represent the future of asset management, thanks to their ability to provide investors safe and liquid exposure to multiple asset classes. Some experts believe that total ETF assets under management may increase to as much as $10 trillion over the next five to eight years, up from a bit more than $3 trillion currently. Despite their furious growth, ETFs remain a mystery to most IROs.

In this webinar we will discuss:

- Understanding the impact that different types of ETFs may have when they appear in your shareholder register;
- How ETFs may affect short-term volatility in your stock price and the composition of your shareholder base in the long term
- How ETF flows are a key market signal and how, as an IRO, you can leverage them

Speakers include:

- Eric Balchunas, senior ETF analyst, Bloomberg
- Irene Bauer, chief investment officer and founding partner, Twenty20 Investments
- Laurie Havelock, business writer and journalist, IR Magazine

  • IR Magazine Webinar - Getting roadshows right in a changing landscape Jan 24 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    IR Magazine and Q4
    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? Recorded: Dec 13 2018 41 mins
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg
    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 Recorded: Nov 6 2018 37 mins
    Corporate Secretary and Labrador
    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?

    Investor targeting is one of the most crucial pillars of a strong IR program, and a comprehensive approach can boost your company’s liquidity, visibility and more. Indeed, more than a quarter (26 percent) of the nominees for the recent IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2018 say that if they had more cash, they would spend it on investor targeting. Almost a third (32 percent) say this is where they would dedicate the extra resources if they had a larger team.

    In this webinar, a panel of experts from across the capital markets will look at how investor targeting techniques have evolved in recent years, and look at how they can:
    – Boost the accuracy and ROI of your targeting efforts
    – Fully understand the behavior of your investor base
    – Help to identify new investors or international pools of money
    – Enable your company to remain visible in a post-Mifid II world, or amid other changes to the sell side

    Duration: 30 minutes

    The debate around ESG is one of the most compelling in the IR world at the moment: are governance teams at large institutional investors dictating a narrative that is unrepresentative of the broader investment community or are investors genuinely broadening their assessment of what they deem to be material for their investment process?

    What is clear is that ESG is much more of a talking point on earnings calls and in other forums between investors and issuers, according to data from Intelligize. In this webinar we will explore how IR teams and corporate secretaries are working together to ensure that their company is well prepared for investor questions on ESG – whether they come from portfolio managers or governance teams.

    •David Burdziuk, director of IR, Suncor Energy

  • IR Magazine Webinar – How IR can best deliver the ‘S’ in ESG Recorded: Mar 27 2018 47 mins
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg
    The last year has seen considerable attention focused on the growing demands from institutional investors for companies to make new ESG-based disclosures. Amid the focus on environmental and governance issues, there has been less discussion of social issues. But more investors are looking for disclosure in this area, and one of the key challenges for companies and their IR teams is deciding on and delivering the right data.

    In this webinar, a panel of industry specialists will examine what investors want to know, and how IR practitioners can ensure their company is telling the right story in the most effective way.

    Speakers will address

    • How well are companies delivering the information investors seek – and what can they do to improve their performance?
    • Faced with a range of indices and requests for different types of data, how can IR teams decide where to focus their efforts?
    • How can you turn the qualitative nature of many social issues into numbers?
    • How can IR teams best leverage their ‘E’ and ‘G’ efforts in the ‘S’ space?

    Many US companies are grappling with FASB’s changes to reporting revenue. These changes have a knock-on effect for the analysts who cover you as internal models need to be updated and revenue needs to be recalculated.

    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
    •Best practices for an effective collaboration between IR and the CEO/CFO

    Buy-side analysts have benefited from algorithms and quantitative models for some time, enhancing the speed and accuracy of their decision-making.

    • Is what you’re saying resonating? How can you use the aforementioned tools to assess whether what you’re communicating to the market is generating positive results?
    • 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 of IROs can be automated to free them up for higher value efforts?

  • IR Magazine Webinar - What Mifid II means for IROs Recorded: Jan 31 2017 52 mins

    Participants will hear:
    • Background and relevant timelines for this regulation
    • The expected impact of Mifid II on equity research
