Investor Relations (IR) departments have been continuously evolving to keep in step with the changes in the capital markets. Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg FD) in the early 2000s and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), which went into effect in 2018, are forcing public companies to think critically about how they operate effectively.
The IR Intelligence group at Nasdaq consults with thousands of public and private companies worldwide. Through our conversations with companies, we have identified two clear near term impacts on IR departments:
- First, more onus is being placed on IR teams to take ownership of investor outreach.
- Second, new entrants are filling the IR seat at many organizations.
Combining the need for more actionable data with the trend that newer IR professionals are more deeply rooted in data and analytics gives rise to redefined investor relations: the Modern IRO is the Data-Driven IRO.
