Due to recent fraudulent cases and errors in reporting of the financial information of listed companies, regulators and analysts have further emphasized the importance of the quality and transparency of relevant information distributed by listed companies.

In response to these calls, leading listed companies have established investor relation departments to act as an interface between them and the investment community.

The following are among the activities within the value chain of the investor relations function:

  • Definition of the investor relations strategy
  • Establishing the mechanism and structure of the investor relations function
  • Tools
  • Development and dissemination of content
  • Feedback from investors

There are some key issues that listed companies must consider when wanting to improve their relationship with investors: effectiveness of the investor relations function, transparency and reporting methods based on results.
