The Certificate in Investor Relations professional
qualification is now regarded as an essential
prerequisite for those entering the investor
relations profession in the United Kingdom.
Starting in the first quarter of 2009, MIRA is
pleased to offer the same quality of professional
development available in the UK to IR
practitioners in Malaysia. The CIR is offered in
collaboration with the Investor Relations Society,
UK’s professional body for IR, highly regarded as
a leading authority on IR in UK and Europe (with
80% of companies on FTSE100 on LSE as its
members) and among the earliest established
professional bodies for IR.
MIRA will offer training and examinaton leading
to the CIR at regular intervals throughout the year
covering the following topics:
1. Introduction to Investor Relations
2. Companies and Regulations
3. Financial Markets
4. Regulatory Environment
5. Accounting Valuation & Investment Principles
6. Practical Experience
The CIR allows IR practitioners to enhance their IR
capabilities and benchmark against international best
practices. It allows listed companies to identify qualified IR
professionals to strengthen their IR function.
The CIR is also an opportunity for development for
professionals from financial intermediary roles such as
investment banking and equity research who want to make
the cross-over into listed companies.
