Investors are increasingly interested in forecasts and company results in order to manage their share portfolios accordingly. Of course, specialised analysts can inform and advise them, but sometimes views differ and it is not always easy to form an opinion before deciding to buy or sell shares. Companies listed on the Stock Market are clearly concerned about their share price, and this is why they organise meetings for analysts from time to time in order to explain their activities and to answer questions. Investors, however, often prefer to meet the people at the top of each company, even the CEO in order to assess both the company’s strategy and its management. A CEO and a fund manager give their respective points of view on this type of ‘one-to-one’ meeting.
