Investor Interviews

ShareChat Investor Interviews offer a great opportunity to question chief executives about their businesses.

On your behalf, ShareChat approaches CEOs and MDs of New Zealand listed companies and asks them to take part in an interview.

Once they have agreed, investors are invited to submit questions and generally have a deadline of around two weeks to send them in. ShareChat then collates the questions and passes them on to the interviewee.

ShareChat publishes and promotes the completed interview on the site in an easy-to-read question and answer format as soon as the CEO has responded with the answers.

This service is an excellent way for investors to ask specific questions of the people who run some of New Zealand's biggest companies, giving access normally limited to journalists or available only to the public at company annual meetings.

If you would like ShareChat to try to arrange an Investor Interview with a specific CEO or MD of a listed company - or if you have any feedback on this or other ShareChat services - please contact us.
