IRM keeps up with online investor communications

In 2002, many listed companies did not have websites, and investors weren't looking. There was no social media, and there were few email alerts. Fast forward to 2022, where investors will check out every website and touchpoint before investing. And they know what they want to see.

Technology has raced ahead as digital communication trends have come and gone. News travels faster now and needs quicker distribution. With social media and other channels abounding, news is amplified with video, blogs and storytelling. Email is still the major website pull device to communicate with investors though.

Obviously, investors now expect more information and functionality on your website and digital channels. Keeping up with online investor communications on your own is hard. But with IRM as a partner, you'll have suggested updates to keep you on top.
