Over the last 5 years there appears to be craze for Investor Relations. It is hot, more so in the corporate world. Towards this end, Business Digest has managed to have a freewheeling discussion with Anand Manu, founder, Investor Relations Society (IR Society). The IR Society has so far conducted Annual Investor Relations (IR) Awards for India Inc with renowned companies of the likes of BSE, Bloomberg, KPMG, Thomson Reuters, Deutsche Bank, BNY Mellon and IR Magazine.

Excerpts :

Business Digest: Why should companies maintain Investor Relations (IR) especially when there is no immediate requirement for funds?

IR Society: Every company irrespective of its size requires funds from Investors (both retail and Institutional) at various stage of its life cycle. Effective IR alone helps in maintaining better valuations and goodwill in the market

Business Digest: What are the ways and means to maintain effective IR?

IR Society: There is no one-size-fit for all the companies. The strategies will vary depending on company’s size, its stature in industry, how best it can be compared to its peers, the Management’s credibility and other such factors. However, we have developed a Certificate in Investor Relations which is currently being offered through the well reputed BSE Institute.

Business Digest: What are the highlights of this Certification in IR program?

IR Society: This is a 4 week Online Program. On making payment to BSE Institute, the Study Material and CD is couriered from our end. A weekly audio call is conducted by industry experts and the participants can clarify their doubts. This is followed by an online test, and Certificates with joint logos of BSE Institute and IR Society are awarded. This is not all, we also offer a free membership to those who have successfully completed the program.

Business Digest: What are the offerings of your IR Society’s membership?

IR Society: We send updates on the IR industry to our members, including information on the job openings in Investor Relations. This apart, we are currently offering a 20% discount on IR Magazine, which is a magazine of international repute in the field of Investor Relations. We are looking forward for more such tie-ups this year.
