Sydney, Australia – February 20, 2014 – A summit of leaders of several of the major national investor relations associations from around the world was held in Sydney on 17-18 February, 2014. The annual event was hosted this year by the Australasian Investor Relations Association and also involved CIRI (Canadian IR Institute), DIRK (German IR Association), IRS (UK IR Society) and NIRI (National Investor Relations Institute from the USA).
Over the two days, participants discussed trends and advancements in IR practice, professional development and regulatory changes impacting investor relations in each of the jurisdictions. Summit attendees also met with representatives of the Australian Securities Exchange and the Australian Securities & Investments Commission to discuss current issues in the practice of investor relations around the world.
In an important new initiative, the five IR organizations agreed to facilitate IR officer to IR officer contact when members are on global roadshows. The organizational leaders agreed that this could be an important enhancement to membership benefits by assisting members to engage with global peers on areas of mutual sector interest and trends in IR practice when travelling to major roadshow destinations around the world.
