|Global Trends in Investor Relations - Eighth Edition: A Survey Analysis of IR Practices Worldwide|
The BNY Mellon Eighth Annual Global Trends in Investor Relations identifies key trends in 2012 based on the 817 responses collected from companies representing 59 countries, up 27% from our 2011 survey. Among the highlights of this year?s survey is that global concern over Eurozone stability and regulatory uncertainty has prompted corporates to increase their engagement with the investment community. It is also clear from the results that the Investor Relations function has assumed a higher profile within corporate strategy to help companies navigate current capital market challenges. We encourage you to contact one of our Global Investor Relations Advisory team members to discuss how to best use the Survey results to plan your investor relations strategy.
