The global credit crunch has created instability and uncertainty in the financial markets not seen for decades. Institutional and private investors have seen share prices fall dramatically across almost all industries and all continents. Many corporations have been largely caught off-guard and are now in damage control. Their focus has shifted to drastically slashing operating costs, maintaining open lines of credit and optimising cash management in a market engulfed in turmoil. Increasing compliance demands and pending global legislation will only further increase pressure on the IR function to deliver.
E.N.G.'s 2009 Global IR summit will address the topics pertinent to establishing a coherent IR strategy adapted to today's and tomorrow's global economy. What does the future hold for the traditional investment model? What of the hedge funds and private equity groups that leveraged so much influence over the last few years? As the front line of financial communications to the markets and private investors, the IR professional's role has never been more critical to the continued success of their corporations.
This programme has been researched extensively and convened with the cooperation of senior executives responsible for investor relations and financial communications.
The executives that will realise the greatest benefit through attendance are those involved in the design of all modes of transport, advisory bodies and associations.
Vice presidents, executives, heads, chiefs and directors of:
• Investor Relations
• Financial Communications
• Shareholder Relations
• Corporate Communications
