On November 29 and 30, 2016, Nasdaq hosted the 35th International Investor Program in association with Morgan Stanley. The conference convened 55 companies and 418 investors from 247 institutions. Institutions in attendance manage total assets of approximately $11 trillion, of which $1 trillion are U.S. equities.
Nasdaq International Investor Program Overview
For the past 20 years, Nasdaq’s International Investor Programs have been the largest U.S. equities institutional investor programs in Europe. These events have the highest number of participants, largest total market cap of companies, and top-level caliber of global investors. Because the event targets 100% of the market (the buy- and sell-side), a neutral platform is provided for companies to showcase their growth and gain access to top European institutional investors. Over the years, every influential European institution has attended these events.
- 363 meetings (102 one-on-ones and 261 group meetings)
- Each company met an average of 20 investors in 8 meetings
November Program Highlights
The night before the International Investor Program, Nasdaq hosted a private dinner at London Film Museums ‘Bond in Motion’ exhibition where 74 company presenters and representatives were in attendance. Guests networked among James Bond vehicles and memorabilia featured in the film series.
The program brought together 55 companies who presented their stories to Europe’s top institutional investors. Executive presenters from Nasdaq-listed companies included Apple, ADP, Cisco Systems, Intuit, Qualcomm, Seagate Technology, Virtu Financial and Willis Towers Watson, to name a few.
There were 247 institutions present from the European investor community with 89% on the buy-side and 11% on the sell-side. We saw investors come from across the globe with companies attending from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Sweden, the U.S., and Italy to name a few.
We look forward to our next program on June 15, 2017. Registration for this event is invitation only and first-come-first-serve. Nasdaq-listed companies must meet certain market cap requirements to participate. For more information, Nasdaq-listed companies may contact their Nasdaq Relationship Manager.
