Session 1: The Changing World of IR
2017 brings the potential for unprecedented macro-economic and political changes that will impact all IROs and the companies we represent. These unpredictable factors span from a new U.S. President and Republican Congress with strong views on tax and trade, a new major stock market listing exchange, a class of institutional investor 'activists' that don’t primarily want to overthrow managements or overhaul strategies for the quick short-term gain, and short sellers that wreak havoc on your stock price if not taken seriously.

8:40 - 9:30 Lessons for IROs from the 2016 Election and What to Expect in 2017
