Pfizer’s advice to new IR professionals

Jennifer Davis, director of IR at Pfizer, gives her top three tips to IR newbies at the IR Magazine Midwest Think Tank 2010.

First of all, engage with the buy side, says Davis. This provides a rich source of information on what investors are thinking and tells you much more than you will find in sell-side reports.

Second, form links within your own company. This gives you quick access to information and allows you to pass on updates regarding competitors and transcripts to your colleagues.

Third, ensure everyone who contacts you gets a call back. Even if you have to contact an investor later because you don’t have the information he or she wants to hand, this is always better than no information at all, Davis concludes.
