NIRI NY NextGen is a sub-group of our chapter geared specifically to meet the needs of up and coming IR professionals who are newer to the workforce and have been in IR for less than 5 years. We strive for NIRI NY to be an engaging, educational, and welcoming place for those starting out in investor relations. Whether you’re embarking on your first role in IR after a stint in equity research , are in a rotational IR spot from finance or elsewhere in your company, or working as an IR consultant or service provider, we encourage you to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge in our community.

Jumpstarting in IR

For public companies and IR consultancies, NIRI NY offers educational insights from experienced practitioners. Newer members are exposed not only to relevant trends – such as shareholder-board communication and international investor outreach – but also to thought leaders with real world context on the fascinating relationships between public companies and their shareholders. Complementing traditional education, NIRI NY NextGen exposes newer members to advanced discussions and develops a more nuanced understanding of approaches in our high profile profession.

Building Your Network in NYC

With our gatherings in the world-class city known for its finance prowess, NIRI NY NextGen attracts renowned speakers and well respected IR practitioners. Newer members have the opportunity to hear from experienced professionals, bringing relevant concepts and learnings back to the office. Our collaborative network of professionals can have a powerful and influential impact on your career and organization.

Recent NextGen Event

On October 4th, over 30 NIRI NY NextGen IR professionals attended a trivia and networking event at The Ainsworth in Manhattan. The event was created exclusively for New York area “NextGen” members and those interested in joining. Rebecca Updegraph of Rivel Research (and VP, NIRI New York Board of Directors) who oversees the chapter’s NextGen initiative, and Allison Sobel of Joele Frank (and NIRI NY NextGen Committee President) hosted the event, which was organized by the NIRI NY NextGen committee: Mark Eckstein (Ipreo), Sherif El-Azzazi (Brookfield Property Group), Adam Fromowitz (AST), Tanya Kamatu (Catalyst IR), Mei Kuo (ShakeShack) and Lauren Tarola (Edelman).

The event attendance was diverse including investor relations officers, consultants as well as service providers from multiple industries.

Following an entertaining hour of trivia, attendees had the opportunity to network with each other while enjoying complimentary cocktails and bites. In addition to bragging rights, the winning trivia team got to go home with well-deserved Starbucks Gift Cards!
