As an Investor Relations practitioner, you know that your role impacts the value of shareholder capital. Fulfilling the role requires a clear understanding of financial statements, enabling you to interpret and translate them into a compelling narrative. Without understanding the numbers, you are not able to anticipate and respond to questions from analysts, investors, and the media. This half-day session, the first of a two-module course, assists those with only a rudimentary financial background to get to grips with the key elements of financial statements.

- Foundation knowledge of a set of company accounts
- An introduction to financial jargon enabling you to respond to investors
- The ability to identify which numbers are important to communicate your company’s narrative
- The most frequently used financial and stock market ratios
- A basic ability to discuss results with key stakeholders
Who should attend?
- IROs with no formal accountancy training
- Those wanting to understand how financial analysts and investors look at companies
- Investor relations teams
- Corporate communications teams
Note: while an accounting degree is not required, attendees should have a basic understanding of financial concepts.
