ALEXANDRIA, VA (March 4, 2021) - The National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI), the world's largest professional investor relations association, has announced a new strategic partnership with the Hong Kong Investor Relations Association (HKIRA) that will bring the programming and education initiatives of both organizations closer together.

"HKIRA is excited to partner with National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI)," said Dr. Eva Chan, Chairman of HKIRA. "It is the mission of HKIRA to advance the professional development of our members and the best practices in investor relations. We believe that the HKIRA members will greatly benefit from the huge educational and informational resources shared from NIRI."

"We look forward to more interactions across the countries in the investor relations industry," Chan said. 

This partnership is not only designed to promote awareness of the IR profession and improve the standard of IR excellence in Hong Kong and China, but also make it easier for HKIRA members to have access to key educational and informational resources, including the IR Competency Suite and the IR Body of Knowledge, which are the main references for NIRI's Investor Relations Charter (IRC®) credential.
