Exclusive Euro IRP Members Event – Advance Results of the 2020 Members’ Study
July 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We were delighted to launch, last month, our Annual Members Survey, now in its fourth year, the primary aim of which is to capture valuable data about the independent research sector and our membership, highlighting the key questions and issues faced in their businesses today, to generate valuable trend data. At this critical time for our industry, with the backdrop of COVID and with Brexit on the horizon, this year’s survey has never been more important to capture the sentiment of our members.
We are hosting this online event, on Monday 27 July, exclusively for our members with Steve Kelly, who will be sharing the first insights into the report’s findings, importantly before it’s publication in early August. Sadly, due to COVID-19 we are still unable to host meetings at The Brand Exchange, but we are very much looking forward to welcoming our Members to an online presentation, hosted via Zoom, and will comprise of a presentation by Steve Kelly, followed by a Q&A session regarding the survey’s outputs.
We have decided to host this event via a Zoom Call, and not a Zoom Webinar, to enable interaction between Steve Kelly and our members during the Q&A session. Whilst we have been using Webinar platforms for more formal presentations, we feel that this medium is more suited to external presenters with written Q&A with our members, whilst a Zoom Call will allow a more personal Q&A when we are presenting to you all.
Members will still need to RSVP to this invitation to receive a link to join Zoom and password to join the presentation. Once you have RSVP’d you will receive a confirmation of your place and 24 hours before the event you will be sent your login to join the call.
As in previous years we have asked Steve Kelly to prepare a full report, with analysis of the survey findings, a copy of which will be available in early August to all our Euro IRP Members. The final published report is shared with the press, media, other financial institutions, and importantly the regulators, as they continue to put research pricing under close scrutiny in 2020. The annual survey is not only an initiative to raise the profile of independent research, but also a valuable tool to continue to collect evidence to support our genuine concerns on unfair competition, and the aggressive practices of the investment banks. Euro IRP remains the recognised voice of the independent research sector by the regulators, and our Euro IRP Members Survey is quickly becoming established as a vital source of information, especially in light of the regulators wanting more “real” data on the market.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members who have taken part in our survey this year and supported us with this important initiative. Without your support our annual Study is simply not possible. Thank you.
