How do UK companies communicate with their institutional shareholders? This issue is of considerable importance to policy makers, accounting bodies and financial market regulators. The nature of private voluntary disclosure by companies to their core institutional shareholders casts light on the apparent privilege available to major institutional shareholders which is unavailable to other investors. Within the bounds of insider trading laws and Stock Exchange guidance on the dissemination of price sensitive information, there remains scope for legitimate exchange of information in private. Is that legitimate exchange beneficial only to the participants, or is there a wider benefit? Is the exchange in any way detrimental? This project provides insight into the communications between large UK companies and their core institutional shareholders which helps in forming a response to such questions.
