Get The Global Attention You Deserve!
Use our international scheduler to register your financial event and prevent it from clashing with other company presentations that day and time.
IR Global League works just like an “Air Traffic System” to ensure your financial event gets the global attention it deserves.
When you schedule your event in the IRGL system with a day and time, this information is available on our website. You can then prepare confidently, knowing your industry’s leading stakeholders can make themselves available to cover your presentation.
Dealing With Corporate Access
Corporate access has become a buzzword in the financial markets this century.
Investor relations are developing more and more on a global scale, and the delivery of corporate access has become crucial for its stakeholders.
Our scheduling “Air Traffic System” plays an important role in deconflicting the planning of corporate access and allows you to reach investors at the front end. IR Global League has been developed to be neutral to all parties.
Sjöö Sandström Partnership
We have developed the scheduler together with the top-of-the-range Swedish clock manufacturer Sjöö Sandström who offers several high-end models. If you want to know more about our partners, just click on their logo or here Sjöö Sandström .
If you click on the clock on the home page, it will open, and you will be able to start searching for future events globally.
IR Global League is the leading digital information platform for financial events.
Our vision is to improve information, transparency, and corporate governance. We favor mutual information exchange between participants by providing an “Air Traffic System” to schedule financial events.
We have called our system Investor Relations Global League because we believe in showcasing the best of the best companies worldwide. Like other leagues, markets are built on arenas (venues) and clubs or brands (companies) and with star personalities (CEOs, CFOs, IROs, and moderators).
IR Global League has been developed to be neutral to all parties.
The simple rule in IR Global League is that all parties with something to present have the right to be members. All parties contributing to members’ presentations have the right to be partners. Many of the parties are, therefore, both members and partners. The base fee is the same for both parties. Currently, the fee is 600 Euros per year.
The History of IRGL
The IIRF, International Investor Relations Federation, was originally the brainchild of Neil Ryder and Lou Thompson (respectively the heads of the UK and US investor relations societies). Together with France and Denmark they wanted to increase the transparency between all capital markets in the world. It focused mainly on an annual International Conference.
Their Chairman, Lynge Blak, grew the member base from 4 to 35 national investor relations societies. IIRF ran from 1990 to 2007, when the last IIRF Conference took place in Tokyo, Japan. Today the IIRF network lives a more informal life under the Global Investor Relations Network.
IRGL, or Investor Relations Global League, was initially developed by the IIRF. It started as a Nordic pilot project with an “Air Traffic System” to schedule financial events and presentations. It was first launched by Financial Hearings and the Nordic IR Societies in 2002. It was then formally launched together with IIRF as IR Global League in 2003 to create a “mutual exchange of event information.”
Note: IRGL does not produce any events of its own but has its rating model and can give advice on presentations together with its many partners. IRGL has been operating since 2003 from London and has provided an event scheduling service for over ten years. In 2013, the main operation moved to Stockholm and the Nordic regions. It has also served the market with yearly and quarterly “conflict reports.”
