distinguish themselves to the investment community. Few companies can
afford big Investor Relations teams and even fewer can allocate big IR budgets. Yet, with
increasing competition for funds in the capital markets, companies cannot
afford to ignore IR.
As a relatively new profession, there is a significant shortage of experienced
IROs across Asia. What Asian companies require are well-trained IROs who
are equipped with the proper â€˜soft skillsâ€™ for effective financial
communications in todayâ€™s global capital markets from an Asian perspective.
IROs are important, but often untapped, information source to help
management to better position their companies and improve their investment
image. But who can IROs, including CEOs and CFOs, turn to?
This course highlights the need for practical and effective training for todayâ€™s
IROs. The 2-day workshop will train IROs to better handle their challenges as
important financial communicators. Unlike a large-scale conference, this
workshop capacity is deliberately kept to a manageable classroom size to
facilitate effective learning and discussion. The training will, through a series
of presentations, case studies and group discussions, empower IROs with
practical tools to enhance their effectiveness despite limited resources.
They will have the opportunity to tap real life experiences and insights from a
course trainer who has ran investor relations for several years in one of the
largest, most widely covered and arguably most complicated companies listed
on the Singapore Exchange, and have met thousands of fund managers around
the world in the process.
