Every month, Ipreo reaches out to our network of financial professionals to get their insight into issues that affect the marketplace, and to provide our Corporate clients with a little glimpse into the minds of the investment community.
Among our most essential resources are the buy-side analysts and portfolio managers we work with, colleagues who are in the trenches every day, dealing firsthand with the challenges and complexities of the industry. We look to them for their opinions and insider viewpoints on the essential topics of the day, in order to both stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape and to stay ahead of the challenges and concerns of our clients.
This month, we asked select buy-side analysts and portfolio managers about sharing financial information on platforms like Twitter. A few years ago, we asked the buy side how often they use social media, but this time, we asked specifically about disseminating information through it. Not shockingly, most still prefer the more traditional methods of communication, and even the ones who are in favor of using social media suggest it should always be complementary.
“What are your thoughts on companies using Twitter/other social media for sharing financial results?”
