Do Investors Insist That You Have an IR Website?
PR Newswire’s 2017 Shareholder Communications 365 Study asked nearly 4,000 institutional investor – “Would you invest in a public company that does not have an investor relations website?”
The answer – 65% of institutional investors surveyed would not invest in a public company that did not have an IR website. 31% of institutional investors said they would and that is down 12% from last year’s survey.
Historically, this question always receives a wide variety of comments:
Communication with the investment community is an essential component of a well-managed public company.
Companies have to have an investor relations section on the company website to consider investment.
Depends on how well I otherwise know the company and the information the company makes public.
Depends upon information obtained from other reputable sources.
Generally no, but if I have knowledge of the company and other reliable source of info I might consider the company.
