The Investor Relations Society (IR Society) is a membership organization that exists to develop the investor relations profession in the UK and beyond. It is run by IR professionals for IR professionals. Established in 1980, our mission is to promote best practice in investor relations; to support the professional development of our members; to represent their views to regulatory bodies, the investment community and government; and to act as a forum for issuers and the investment community.

We have over 700 members (approximately half of whom are corporates), including representatives from about 70% of the FTSE 100 and a growing number of FTSE 250, AIM and smaller companies as well as some overseas companies and a wide range of IR advisers and service providers.
