IR at 40: Future is Bright, Pincus Says

Forty years ago this month, Ted Pincus launched the Chicago-based Financial Relations Board (FRB), the first-ever public relations firm dedicated to helping companies cultivate
a more open and prosperous relationship with their investors. The Financial Relations Board recently merged with BSMG Worldwide, the sixth-largest marketing public relations firm
in the world. Pincus is chairman and CEO of FRB and a vice-chairman of BSMG Worldwide. We caught up with the founding father of investor relations to discuss the narrowing
information gap between companies and investors, the potential of the Internet to promote better relations between investors and companies, and the outlook for IR in an age where
the sun never sets on the financial markets.
