Equips students and professionals with the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to succeed in investor relations and financial communication

Investor Relations and Financial Communication is a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the investor relations and financial communication profession. Written by a leading educator and professional consultant, this authoritative textbook provides the well-rounded foundation necessary for anyone wanting to begin a career as an Investor Relations Officer (IRO). Detailed yet accessible chapters describe all essential aspects of the field, including communication skills, basic financial knowledge, legal and regulatory guidelines, professional standards and practices, and more.

Organized in five sections, the book first identifies and defines the jobs available in investor relations and financial communication, detailing the responsibilities, titles, salaries, and key players in the industry. After thoroughly explaining the disclosure of financial and non-financial information, the author describes the regulatory environment in which professionals operate and offers expert insight into issues of corporate governance, environmental sustainability, social responsibility, shareholder activism, and crisis management. Subsequent sections highlight the day-to-day activities of investor relations and financial communication professionals and discuss the future of the field. This invaluable textbook also:
* Describes the responsibilities of the Investor Relations Officer throughout initial public offering, periodic reporting, and performance evaluation
* Discusses the role of investor relations professionals in disclosing financial information and educating the investment community
* Emphasizes the various skills that IROs must possess in order to do their jobs successfully, such as marketing and securities law compliance
* Includes end-of-chapter review questions, activities, and lists of key terms

Investor Relations and Financial Communication: Creating Value Through Trust and Understanding is the perfect textbook for both professional development training programs and undergraduate and graduate courses in investor relations, and is required reading for all those working in investor relations, particularly early-career professionals.
