The role of technology in enhancing investor engagement

The seventh Luminous Spotlight podcast explores the role technology can play in enhancing corporate reporting and investor engagement.

The role of technology in enhancing investor engagement
Stephen Butler, Luminous’ Director of Investor Engagement and ESG Disclosure, catches up with Thomas Toomse-Smith, Head of Innovation and Digital – Regulatory Standards at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), to shed some light on digital innovation in the corporate communications landscape.

Digital transformation is not a new term, but its impact is being felt across industries. As discussed by the FRC and the FRC Lab, corporate reporting can no longer remain founded on paper in a modern, digital world – and slowly, standard setters and lawmakers are recognising this. Now it’s time that businesses take note and go further than the basic mandate to meet investors’ and other stakeholders’ expectations.

In discussion, Toomse-Smith explains the following areas:

  • The opportunity for technology in corporate communications
  • Emerging technologies, i.e. AI and blockchain
  • The role of investor relations (IR) sections in corporate websites
  • The fate of the printed annual report

To hear Thomas’ recommendations on how companies should approach technology in their reporting methods, you can listen to the full conversation below.
