Following the MOU signed on December 2017, the Middle East Investor Relations Association (MEIRA) and Muscat Securities Markets (MSM) organised an Investor Relations (IR) seminar, aimed at raising awareness and knowledge of the IR role and the international standards in Corporate Governance. The event took place at MSM Headquarters on Monday.

Titled “Corporate Governance and Investor Relations”, the seminar started with a presentation to expose the main principles of Corporate Governance by Sanjay Kawatra, Partner at EY Oman, followed by Tara A Bassit, Asset Management at United Securities, who explained the role of Corporate Governance within the IR function from an investor perspective.

Rashad Ali Mohammad al Dohh, Head of Investor Relations at Bank Muscat and MEIRA Oman Chapter Head, concluded the event with a case study on how Bank Muscat manages a successful IR programme.“Our efforts continue to ensure all listed companies are well aware of the importance of IR and the story of their business is complete and accurate. Best practices in IR make certain that effective communication is taking place between a company and its shareholders”, commented Rashad.

“This seminar aims to educate the local market professionals on IR best practice and to keep them abreast with the latest industry trends,” said Clemence Piot, General Manager, MEIRA.
