Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Webinar - ESG matters: materiality and a growing list of questions

Tuesday, June 26, 2018
8.00 am PST / 11.00 am EST / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET
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.

Speakers include:

•Moderator: Ben Ashwell, digital editor, IR Magazine
•David Burdziuk, director of IR, Suncor Energy
•Marc Butler, director of thought leadership, Intelligize
•Sally Curley, founder and CEO, Curley Global IR (CGIR)


Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes. Sign up to BrightTALK to view this essential briefing and be informed of future webinars produced by IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary.

  • Corporate Secretary Webinar – Handling registered-agent challenges Sep 25 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Corporate Secretary and Computershare
    As a company grows – whether organically or through M&A – staying on top of registered-agent issues becomes more complex and demanding. Whether corporate secretaries choose to handle the registered-agent role in-house or, as most do, engage a third party, they need to ensure the work is handled accurately and efficiently.
    A growing business can find itself having to be on top of handling lawsuits and other legal documents in up to 50 states. Failing to do so accurately and on time can leave the company at risk of stiff penalties. This all adds to an ever-expanding workload for corporate secretaries as they become increasingly involved in areas such as corporate strategy, shareholder engagement and ESG issues.

    IR Magazine and Q4
    Investors are changing how they invest, engage and make decisions. Technology is rapidly changing how the capital markets function, through high-frequency trading, algorithmic trading, Big Data and artificial intelligence. The capital markets are in flux, and so too is the future of the investor relations profession. This throws up new challenges and opportunities for IR teams, and raises the question of how the top IROs can continue to deliver high-quality, strategic IR counsel to their senior management.
    In this webinar we will:
    • Look at how the capital markets are evolving
    • Discuss how IR teams can respond to these challenges
    • Examine how IR teams can incorporate elements of equity sales into their IR program

  • Corporate Secretary Webinar – Top-level talks: Exploring board communication Recorded: May 30 2019 41 mins
    Corporate Secretary and Nasdaq
    One of a board’s key responsibilities is communicating to management and the company as a whole about strategy and where the organization is headed. It is also essential that members of the board – CEO, chair, committee heads and other directors – learn to communicate between themselves effectively.

    Governance teams spend a lot of time and effort helping deliver information to boards and keeping directors up to date on emerging risks, compliance requirements and other developments affecting the company. They also need to help ensure communications from and within the board are tailored properly and are delivered to the right people at the right time and in the right way.

    Our panel of experts will discuss issues including:

    •In what areas should the board focus its communications to management?
    •How can the board best frame and deliver its messages on strategy and other topics?
    •How can governance teams best manage and guide board communications?
    •What are best practices for communications within the board?
    •What mistakes should boards avoid making in delivering information to employees?

  • IR Magazine Webinar – Data-driven investor outreach Recorded: May 22 2019 61 mins
    IR Magazine and Nasdaq
    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 Recorded: Apr 23 2019 56 mins
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and S&P Global
    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 Recorded: Apr 4 2019 43 mins
    IR Magazine and Q4
    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 webinar – Putting the ‘S’ in ESG Recorded: Mar 21 2019 53 mins
    IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary and Intelligize
    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 Recorded: Mar 14 2019 46 mins
    IR Magazine and Bloomberg
    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 Webinar - Getting roadshows right in a changing landscape Recorded: Jan 24 2019 52 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?

    The recent abusive Elon Musk twitter postings and the Papa John’s racist storm:
    What went wrong for these to happen?

    How can this be done effectively?
    How can the IRO put social media at the heart of the overall IRO strategy?

    The instant reply: ensuring a comment is addressed immediately, in real time.
    The promotion of the company via positive PR and good news
    The CEO commenting on the business: a good use of senior management being involved and visible
    The IRO addressing a specific audience: keeping on message and ensuring a select audience knows the established company message
    Explore in turn, the benefits of each approach

    The IRO dilemma: social media scope and limits

    Duration: 30 minutes

    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
    – Save you time through pipeline and workload management
    – Let you report more comprehensively to the board

    Presented by IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary and sponsored by Intelligize
    Tuesday, June 26, 2018
    8.00 am PST / 11.00 am EST / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET
    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.

    Speakers include:

    •Moderator: Ben Ashwell, digital editor, IR Magazine
    •David Burdziuk, director of IR, Suncor Energy
    •Marc Butler, director of thought leadership, Intelligize
    •Sally Curley, founder and CEO, Curley Global IR (CGIR)


    Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes. Sign up to BrightTALK to view this essential briefing and be informed of future webinars produced by IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary.

  • 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?

    • John Cummings, senior vice president of investor relations, Salesforce
    • Moderator: Ben Maiden, editor, IR Magazine
    • Lee O’Dwyer, team leader for West Coast regional sales, Bloomberg
    • Brian Rice, portfolio manager, CalSTRS
