Just Released: CIRI's Guide to Developing an Investor Relations Program

No comprehensive program exists that teaches the unique combination of skills and knowledge required to be successful in investor relations. Those new to the IR function are often overwhelmed by the responsibilities and are uncertain where to begin, and what questions to ask.

The first edition of this Guide to Developing an Investor Relations Program was commissioned by CIRI in 2001 to assist investor relations professionals in setting up and maintaining an effective IR program. The second edition was issued in 2005 and reflected changes to regulatory requirements, including new continuous disclosure and corporate governance disclosure obligations. This third edition reflects changes to regulatory requirements since 2005 and the evolution of IR practices and communications channels in the current environment.

Included in this edition are:
•       two 'real-life' case studies to help demonstrate the value of IR;
•       an overview of the key communications tools used in IR;
•       examples of potentially material information;
•       a summary of continuous disclosure requirements and resources;
•       a glossary of IR terms; and
•       CIRI's Code of Ethics and Practice Guidelines.

This is an invaluable resource to those new to the profession who are preparing an IR Program for the first time, and for seasoned IROs looking to ensure their IR Programs are current and comprehensive.
