Investor Relations Handbook provides a comprehensive guide to best practice and legal and regulatory compliance for investor relations officers, their advisors and anyone involved in corporate communication. This user-friendly manual makes it easy to access and understand information on all aspects of this multi-faceted discipline. Investor relations is of increasing consequence for the corporate community because of its influence on cost of capital - share prices and credit ratings - and as a tool for managing communications and reputation. Financial mismanagement scandals such as Enron, the resulting initiatives to increase transparency in corporate reporting and the FSA's rules on the dissemination of price sensitive information (and the SEC's similar Regulation FD in the US) provide further impetus for ensuring strong IR practice. The growing number of investors with different investment criteria, the increase in hedge funds and the resultant volatility in share prices, combined with the continuing escalation in shareholder activism, compounds this and makes effective communication to different audiences even more vital.
Investor relations professionals therefore need a reliable, accessible guide to area, common problems and the regulatory issues. All those needing information on this increasingly important field will welcome the Investor Relations Handbook because it:* provides practical, accessible, user-friendly guidance with examples drawn from real companies and events* covers all core information in a logical fashion* includes useful checklists, case studies, bullet point summaries and overviews of the relevant rules and regulations* notes further information and useful addresses and websites. Investor relations personnel, investment professionals, all those in corporate communications, company secretaries, directors, PR professionals and consultants, corporate lawyers, accountants, treasurers, bankers and analysts will find the Investor Relations Handbook helps them improve performance by providing an indispensable source of guidance.
