Global Trends in Investor Relations - Fifth Edition: A Survey Analysis of IR Practices Worldwide

As the leading depositary bank, BNY Mellon's staff is afforded a unique position in the international financial markets.Our staff is consistently asked by DR issuers from across the globe to help determine the most important aspects of an effective global investor relations (IR) program. As part of our ongoing commitment to assisting issuers in achieving capital markets success, BNY Mellon's Depositary Receipts Division annually conducts an IR survey to identify global trends that may be used as a benchmark for developing a strategic approach to investment community outreach.

For the fifth annual survey, the respondent base was broadened to include North American companies. As a result, the survey is our most extensive to date, with 270 participating companies from 42 countries. This is a significant expansion from the inaugural 2004 survey that included feedback from 35 companies in 13 countries. We encourage you to read the results and to connect with your Relationship Manager, local representative or your regional Global Capital Markets specialist to discuss this year's findings.
