  • Challenges of technology - using mobile devices, the web and more to deliver interactive reporting
  • Regulatory changes increase the need for clarity & consistency in reports

Russian companies devote 20% of IR budget to formal disclosure; ahead of European average of 17%

Russian companies need to put more focus on sustainability reporting

Best Practice - a long term play
  • Success in Investor Relations is based on building trust with both Buy-Side & Sell-Side
  • Trust takes time to create - and needs consistency, transparency and willingness to engage
  • Recalibration of the Buy-Side means understanding and identifying investors has to be more individual, targeted and precise
  • All against the backdrop of scarce resources, and an uncertain market
  • Long term IR best practices will generate a premium in the stock price. How do investors see your IR efforts?

  • Since 2007, the Top 10 European IR Extel winners outperformed the Eurostoxx 600 by 23.6% on a total return basis.
  • Despite a superior return, the risk of the Extel portfolio is only marginally higher in terms of Beta and Standard Deviation.
  • Since 2008, there has a widening in the performance of the top rated European companies for IR, compared to the Eurostoxx 600. This underlines the importance of IR in challenging markets, when investor demand for transparency and visibility is at a premium.
