Ipreo recently surveyed 74 of its investor relations clients to gather feedback from Investor Relations Officers on best practices in Board Reporting. The goal of the outreach was to uncover and define the typical content that an investor relations department provides to its Board of Directors. We wanted to reveal the most important facets of the Board Report, as well as share any new or unique information, data, or insight that can be provided. Finally, we wanted to document the typical frequencies of Board meetings and provide color around IR’s role at those meetings. The collected feedback is not surprising, but offers unique insight into some interesting new ideas being provided by best-in-class IR programs. For example, while only half of IR departments provide direct buy-side commentary, we found that this information is highly valued by Board members. Based on the collected data, Ipreo has created a synopsis of the general feedback on best practices in Board Reporting.
