The IR Society of South Africa was formed in 2015 to represent the interests and provide a voice for professional Investor Relations practitioners.
IRSSA’s ultimate objective is to set world-class investor relations standards and strengthen communication between publically listed companies and shareholders, prospective investors and other interested parties. In turn, this will improve management’s understanding of company perceptions among the investment community.
The IRSSA provides a platform to promote the role of investor relations as a strategic function within publically listed companies. It supports this objective by enabling IR practitioners to share experiences, become familiar with new trends and how to apply these within their own programmes, while also being advised of practices that have been less effective. This platform of sharing will improve techniques and encourage best practice.
The Society envisages its role becoming increasingly important as more companies acknowledge the value of strategic investor relations and begin to resource accordingly with skilled and dedicated teams.
Engagement among practitioners that are IRSSA members takes place through various formats including annual general meetings, conferences, digital communication platforms, and other networking sessions.
