Top Blogs from 2015

Over the year, our blog has covered a vast array of topics which we thought were of particular relevance to investor relations teams in emerging markets. To the best of our abilities, we have also been trying to keep up with and summarise key points from the vast amount of surveys, thought pieces and research papers landing on our desks each week discussing today’s rapidly evolving investment environment.

Of most interest to us were (as you might guess!) developments of new technologies impacting the fund and wealth management (…and consequently IR) industries, regulations around corporate access and investment research as well as potentially transforming developments Saudi Arabia, China and Iran – all of which heavily influence the thinking of global EM investor.

Below is a cross selection of articles from our blog that our regular readers found most interesting. We enjoyed hosting the blog this year, and we’re grateful for all the feedback we got so far. Please let us know how we can make it even better next year.

  1. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!


  2. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
