Everyone, irrespective of their industry or role wants to be fully prepared for meetings to ensure they are a valuable use of all the participants time. This is especially true of Investor Relations teams who are often managing one of their company’s most important resources - senior management’s time.
For IR teams, being fully prepared for investor meetings typically means having all the details from prior meetings, answers to any questions that have been previously raised and an overall understanding of what the investor cares about. Shareholding data and generic investor profiles sourced from vendors only go a small part of the way to providing what is needed to maximize the value of a meeting - real investor intelligence comes from the notes that IR teams diligently create after each meeting and build up over a number of years.
This is the database that informs IR teams of the key concerns an investor has about the company and the triggers for them to increase their shareholding - intelligence that can only be obtained after 1x1 meetings or calls with investors. Yet, despite the importance of these notes, from speaking with IRO’s it is clear that too much time is being spent in existing systems trying to manage this information and valuable insights are being lost due to the difficulty in extracting key details from the mass of information.
Adding a meeting note function is one of the most popular feature requests we get from our users which tells us that existing solutions for managing this process are not delivering the value that IR teams need. Armed with this feedback, we have been working with IRO’s to build something that improves the way notes can be used, ensures key insights are immediately accessible and brings efficiency to the whole process.
We will be releasing three features in the coming months that will deliver a simple solution for taking and using notes intelligently and help IR teams to fully maximize the value of the investor intelligence they collate.
When creating a note, every dimension is automatically stored against the note (event, meeting type, location, date and time, meeting participants, who created the note and when etc.) with the added option to add relevant tags - Enabling powerful search and providing the tools to always find the information you need.
IR teams can filter their complete database of investor intelligence by any criteria to pull out individual or groups of notes to find common themes. Want to view all notes related to Hedge Funds who are Shareholders and based in North America, or which investors have highlighted dividends as an area of interest - Key insights are at your fingertips.
