CFO Insights — Effective IR: Lessons from the trenches

Published on: Jan 29, 2015

Public companies are engaging with shareholders in dramatically different ways these days, and demands from stakeholders are high. Meanwhile, regulatory scrutiny has intensified, as has shareholder activism. Against that backdrop, investor relations (IR) departments must continually strive to serve the interests of their organizations, as well as shareholders.

But what does it take to have a truly effective IR team, and how can IR provide value to CFOs and management, as well as investors? To answer those questions, we’ve asked five leaders of large-company IR departments to share their views on some of the most difficult aspects of IR.

This issue discusses IR excellence in the following areas: working with the C-suite, addressing “value gaps” between management and analysts, communicating strategic changes, disclosing bad news, and dealing with activist shareholders.
