The role of investor relations is unique, combining a knowledge of finance and accounting with business strategy and communication skills. Serving as a conduit between investors and a company’s top executives, some of the key duties for an IR professional are reporting public material information, complying with various disclosure rules and developing relationships with investors.
In 2016, NIRI introduced the Investor Relations Charter credential. The IRC provides a global standard for the IR industry that recognizes the abilities of professionals who obtain the designation. The IR Competency Framework includes 10 subject areas, often referred to as domains, ranging from strategy, messaging development, financial reporting and more. More information about the program, including resources for the IRC designation exam, are available at niri.org/certification.
