Join us for a discussion of the findings in Corporate Access Through COVID-19 and Beyond, our recent whitepaper analyzing insights gained from interviews with U.S.-based portfolio managers representing $610 billion in total Equity Assets Under Management (EAUM). The managers gave us their opinions on topics including the importance of in-person access to senior management of non-U.S. issuers, the emphasis on ESG discussions, and the frequency of meetings they prefer.
Key findings include:
97% of investors surveyed prefer access to management before initiating an investment.
82% noted the increasing importance of ESG considerations during due diligence. That rises to 100% with firms having over $25 billion in EAUM.
The availability of DRs improved the likelihood of investment in international issuers, particularly by managers with smaller EAUM.
We look forward to a spirited discussion of corporate access today and how you can better meet the demands of current and prospective investors.
