As IR professionals, one of your main jobs is to know what the buy side is thinking. To help you in this respect, here at Inside Investor Relations we provide you with a steady stream of fund manager profiles to read.
New to the site this week, you can hear from Robert Talbut, chief investment officer at Royal London Asset Management, who reveals that one FTSE 100 company will announce the reform of its pay scheme for executives within the coming months, in a move that could put pressure on other companies to follow suit.
In recent months we’ve also had profiles of James Henderson from Henderson Global Investors and Steve Russell from Ruffer, both of whom explained not only their investment strategies but also their impressions of you guys in the IR industry. We’ve got plenty more profiles on the way so keep visiting Inside Investor Relations to find out what makes the buy side tick.
Many congratulations to all the winners at last Thursday’s IR Magazine US Awards 2011, where Covidien walked away with four prizes including the grand prix for best overall IR by a large cap. If you attended, thank you for coming along and we hope you had a great time.
