Global Investor Relations Executives Council

Apply Here

As investor relations executives, we serve as the conduit of communication between senior management and investors.

  • What are the best ways to create, update and share the company message with investors, as well as provide ongoing feedback to management?
  • How do we optimize our outreach programs and target potential long-term shareholder groups such as socially responsible investors?
  • We discuss strategy as well as tactical concerns about the nuts-and-bolts of our work and share best practices.

In addition we’ll keep abreast of global and regional economic, regulatory and political risks. The interests of our members drive all our meeting agendas.
