It is not easy for even IR managers, who deal with securities analysts and institutional investors on a daily basis, to grasp the real opinions held about their company. Utilizing our third-party perspective, we conduct surveys targeting both domestic and overseas buy-side analysts, fund managers, and in particular sell-side analysts—all of whom can have a large influence on a company’s stock price—to ascertain how they evaluate our clients, the basis for these evaluations, and what expectations they have for future management and IR activities. We then provide our clients with advice and guidance on their IR policies and activities based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of the results of these surveys.
