Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine & Labrador
The importance of corporate transparency and efforts to promote it have grown beyond mere tick-the-box exercises to become major initiatives incorporating investor relations (IR) teams, their governance colleagues and outside parties.
During a period such as this, with a major pandemic and major economic distress, transparency is an essential means of ensuring investors feel reassured that they know what’s happening at a company, where it is going – and also what the company may not know yet. The proxy statement, Form 10K, the corporate code of conduct and IR website are all key tools for sharing the company’s message and helping maintain successful relationships with shareholders.
Our panel of experts will discuss issues such as:
• What challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has created for IR and governance teams in their work on transparency, and how they have adapted
• How companies are ensuring their proxy statement, Form 10K and IR website are effective and offer accurate, accessible, comparable and timely information
• How investors’ appetites for transparency have been affected by the crisis and economic uncertainty
