The IR club partners with Ipreo, a leading global provider of market intelligence, investor data and workflow solutions to capital markets and investor relations professionals. Together we will provide intelligence on investment flows and corporate governance trends and host a number of best practice workshops for representatives of investor relations, legal and governance departments at Swiss listed companies.
As part of the partnership, both organizations will work together to provide IR Club members with information such as:
- Semi-annual market studies, including investment flows of current and prospective institutional investors holding Swiss issuers;
- Background contact information and investor analytics on the most important investors for large, mid and small cap Swiss companies;
- An annual corporate governance market study that summarizes ESG trends, the main voting trends, proxy advisor influence analytics and the dependencies of the largest institutional investors on external advisory firms to understand the effect of Minder before and after general meetings, and;
- Best practice roadshow preparation and IR-efficiency examples for Swiss issuers.
The information and studies will enable investor relations offices in Switzerland to benchmark their activity with their peers, and support the proactive planning of roadshows. The joint studies should allow IR Club members timely access to current market trend information to improve IR efforts in becoming more proactive in their investor outreach.
As an additional benefit, IR Club members will be able to take advantage of a 15% discount on Ipreo’s leading IR workflow tool, BD Corporate. Available both on desktop and mobile, the tool includes a comprehensive investor database and CRM system that IR Club members can trial for a month at no cost.
