The NIRI New York and NIRI Virtual Chapters have partnered to offer our members this webinar.

Research from FCLTGlobal and others confirms that long-term focused companies outperform on financial metrics, including revenues, profitability and stock price, as well as non-financial ones like job creation and sustainability. However, many corporate executives agree that short-term pressure impacts their business decisions and reduces valuation.
One approach to improving the investor-corporate dialogue and better reflecting the views of long-term investors is by moving away from quarterly earnings guidance, as Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon have recently advocated. Quarterly guidance harnesses management to self-imposed, short-term targets and encourages investors to focus on this time horizon. In contrast, providing investors with a long-term roadmap focused on the fundamental economic drivers of the business can drive an improved dialogue.
Our panel includes Lori Keith, Portfolio Manager at Parnassus Investments; John Cummings, SVP of IR at Salesforce.com; Jeff Glajch, CFO at Graham Corporation; and Sarah Williamson, CEO of FCLTGlobal.
Learning Objectives:  At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate between quarterly guidance and quarterly reporting
  • Define the advantages of longer-term approach to guidance and dialogue with investors
  • Apply meaningful and concrete steps an IRO can take to shift their company's communications strategy toward the long term

Join us for a lively discussion on the advantages of a longer-term approach and explore meaningful and concrete steps an IRO can take to shift their company's communications strategy toward the long term. Learn from companies who have made that shift and how you can influence change in your organization.
Please come prepared with any questions you may have on this exciting topic.
We look forward to your attendance!
