The Importance of IR Relationships

Our latest Hot Topic Summary Report, a regular feature in which we survey buy-side analysts and portfolio managers for their input on a variety of topics affecting the financial and investment communities, explores the importance of IR relationships.

In the past, Hot Topics have explored Brexitsocial mediathe growth of passive investing, and more. Last month, we took a look at communication with the street, and today we’re focusing on communication with investor relations.

For our most recent Hot Topic, Ipreo asked colleagues about the importance of their IR relationships:

“On a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being highest), how important is your communication with IR when it comes to investing in a company? Why?”

A majority of respondents stressed that a good rapport with management was an important step in the investment process. Technology-specific investors gave the highest overall grade of a 4.5 on average, while generalist investors responded with an average 2.9 rating of importance.
