A new world order: The ascent of IR

Given the seismic changes going on in the geopolitical, economic, regulatory and capital markets landscapes, now is the time for Investor Relations to standout and take a leading role in corporates.  We face a discernible change in the mood of politics, in our business environment and in changing regulations with their impact on market structure. We also face more technological change and of course, the advent of a post-Brexit world. David Lloyd-Seed, our Chair, once spoke of IR having evolved from a cottage industry into the higher profile profession it is today and we wish to explore a new world, perhaps a brave new world, in which the art and science of IR shine in the face of enormous challenges in investor communications.

This background set the scene for the 2017 IR Society Annual Conference. The day saw almost 400 IR professionals gather to meet with peers, compare notes and hear from some wonderful speakers and panellists.
