Citigate Dewe Rogerson’s 15th Annual Global IR Survey

Citigate Dewe Rogerson started investigating investor relations trends in 2009 amid the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. Our first survey featured 80 IRO responses from diverse European companies. Over the years, our annual IR survey gained support, expanding globally in 2016. This year, 159 IROs from leading global companies participated, offering extensive insights into the evolving IR strategies amidst a challenging macroeconomic landscape, marked by liquidity constraints, reduced valuations, and the imperative to enhance investor engagement.

CDR’s 15th Annual IR survey is based on the responses of over 150 IROs from leading companies around the world. Key findings include:

  • Two thirds expanded their outreach through 2023 and intensified engagement efforts with investors;
  • 30% reported an uptick in virtual engagements, with a noteworthy surge in those reporting increased in-person interaction;
  • Just 28% exclusively manage core IR functions, with IROs extending their influence into areas like ESG.
  • A third of IROs now integrate AI into their IR activities; and
  • A majority indicated they are still on track to achieve ESG/net-zero targets.

The survey reflects the evolving capital market landscape, as IR teams tackle new challenges like increased ESG reporting and technology adoption, all while sustaining enhanced dialogue with investors and stakeholders.
