The brief study examines the question: To what extent do DAX and MDAX companies present the Equity Story on their IR websites and what are the formal features and content components used? The study is based on a content analysis of the IR websites of DAX and MDAX companies and shows the potential that is often not yet used.
The short study examines the question: Which competencies are required from the employers' point of view in the area of investor relations and financial communication? This study is based on a content analysis of job advertisements and shows that two areas are particularly important: Communication and an understanding of economics.
The study examines the roles and division of responsibilities of the CEO and CFO in the context of capital market communication. It also focuses on the positioning of the two executives vis-à-vis the financial community. The role of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications is also considered - and recommendations are derived.
