Investor Relations (IR) is the communication of market intelligence between a company and the investment community, by which the company and its investing stakeholders share information and describe the investment proposition of the company. IR is a critical part of corporate strategic management, having direct impact on the company’s ability to present itself within an environment of rapidly increasing information, and to compete for investment resources. Many IR practitioners are multidisciplinary and professionals combining finance, communication, marketing and legal skills.
