Chris Taylor, EVP & Managing Director, Global Investor Relations, Ipreo



Attracting and retaining the right ones can be part of a plan to achieve appropriate valuation and stability for your company’s stock. But, no matter how good or how successful, your company is one among thousands competing for attention and capital from an increasing number of investors globally. How can your company distinguish itself from the crowd in 2013? What qualitative and quantitative factors will impact a buy-side investor’s decision to buy, sell, or short your stock this year?

Chris Taylor will review of the changing buy-side landscape and its impact on equity ownership structure and investor relations strategy including:

  • Can the Index juggernaut be stopped?
  • Hedge funds: Breaking Down the Mystique
  • The increase in global portfolios
  • Overseas investors’ appetite for U.S. equities.
