AGM update from David Walker, Chair of the IR Society

In late June as usual we held our AGM, albeit in a very different format given the constraints placed on physical meetings. I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences with your own company AGMs and results – it’ll be really interesting to see how the format of these events changes post-COVID. Will we go back to physical meetings again or will virtual gatherings become common place? Certainly from our perspective at British Land, having delivered our full year results in mid-May and conducted an investor roadshow over the last few weeks, we’ve missed the in-person interaction. Body language, reading the room, understanding different people’s response to your messages, knowing when to stop talking; however you look at it, this is a fundamental part of what we all do – let’s hope we’re back to more normality as soon as possible.

Webinar summary: How important is the individual to UK PLC in the current climate?

Today we hosted guest speakers from the London Stock Exchange, PrimaryBid, Equitory and Merian Global Investors for an informative discussion about equity fundraisings and broader corporate engagement with retail investors. This has been a topical issue in recent months due to the large number of capital raisings across UK markets and as companies have navigated through AGM season. Beyond this, and over a longer period, the need for companies to consider retail investors alongside their institutional holders has become increasingly important and many of the reasons for this were highlighted during the webinar, along with practical advice for how to effectively integrate a programme for retail investor engagement into the IR calendar.
