• Why Investor Relations?

    For more than 40 years, the CFA Institute has advocated for efficient capital markets that are ethical, transparent, and provide investor protections. One of the Institute’s guiding principles states: “Investors need complete, accurate, timely and transparent information from securities issuers.”

  • Why InsuranceIR?

    Insurance companies face unique challenges when communicating with investors and InsuranceIR is uniquely suited to help with industry-specific support.

    The primary purpose of this blog is to offer specific ideas on how insurance companies can achieve that objective.

“Year-end” is Winding Down … Now for AIFA

I am finding it almost impossible to believe that a year has gone by and that AIFA’s (Association of Insurance Financial Analysts) 2012 annual conference is just a week away.

This conference is one of my favorite “working” events.  So many of my investor and corporate friends attend and we can catch up in a less formal setting (hopefully enjoying a bit of Florida warmth).

In addition to the social aspects, the formal portions of the conference include panel discussions on the variety of topics that insurance-sector investors find important — investments, accounting changes, M&A, rating agency views and business strategies for different property casualty and life insurance business areas.

My experience has been that panel member commentary and investor questions at the AIFA conference often give new insights that can help shape the direction of a quality investor communications effort over the coming months.

I hope to see you there!

Before I close, I also want to draw your attention to two new pages:

These provide details on two areas where InsuranceIR can help insurance companies enhance their investor communications efforts.  I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how these (or InsuranceIR’s other services) might be appropriate for your company’s situation.
