About the 2019 Conference

A new Investor Relations paradigm is emerging. Shifting market structures have strengthened demand on Investor Relations confirming its integral role. The next generation of IR is developing new skills, strategies and expanded teams.

IR professionals must respond to these shifts and take the lead. There is a far greater responsibility being placed on IR teams around roadshow management, responding to an increasing number of investor queries and an intensified focus on ESG, and they are managing company policies more than ever before.

The 2019 AIRA Annual Conference program is set to provide insightful and forward-thinking information that responds to the paradigm. It’s the perfect time to review, reset and navigate a clear path into 2020 and beyond. This year’s program offers key insights into emerging global investor trends. 

Join us to explore the new world of ETFs, passive investment, exchange traded options and quantamental investing. Hear directly from experienced fund managers and CEO’s on what they expect from IR into the future. Uncover shifts in technology, how bots are influencing the world’s largest fund managers, brokers and analytics firms, and how ai and voice diagnostics will be analysing your conference calls in the future.

Discover the importance of “leading with purpose”, what impact it can have on companies, and how IRO’s can leverage this. Network, explore and strategise for 2020 and beyond and a successful new generation of Best Practice IR.

AIRA’s 2018 annual conference was attended by 180+ industry professionals, who emerged with new ideas to develop their own careers, to inspire their performance from sharing ideas with the most influential leaders in the IR world.

This event remains at the forefront of professional development activities run by the AIRA. It provides a program that focuses on contemporary investor relations, market-related and regulatory issues delivered through a series of key-note presentations, panel sessions, and roundtable discussions. In addition, the event also provides excellent network opportunities.
