The business world has never been more competitive, or complex. Since capital is the lifeblood of running a business, raising capital is a company’s top priority. Raising capital requires interacting with shareholders, and knowing which shareholders to target specifically. This is where expertise in investor relations is necessary. Industry experts refer to this process as “achieving best practice IR”. Best practice IR is competing for capital in order to establish a stock’s maximum valuation. Winning the competition for capital is IR’s responsibility to the company and its shareholders. This is how the most successful business leaders set up and run their IR programs.
