Ever wished you could hear and ask questions of CEOs just like fund managers do before investing? A new series of presentations has kicked off that give investors just this opportunity.

ASX and the Finance News Network (FNN) started with a well-attended event in Sydney on 16 October - the first of the ASX Investor Series.

Seven ASX-listed companies each gave a 10-minute presentation (see below), followed by informal discussions with CEOs and senior management over a light lunch.

Eddie Grieve, ASX Head of Listings Business Development, said: "Our first event was a resounding success, with positive feedback from companies and investors alike. The short presentations from a diversified group of companies kept the formalities down and the interest up."

The first Melbourne ASX Investor Series event was held two weeks later. It also generated interest from the investor and broking communities.

One self-managed superannuation fund trustee commented: "Excellent format. I really appreciated the opportunity to ask the CEOs a couple of questions afterwards without the pressure of asking them in the presentation forum."

For each event, Morningstar provided a one-page research note on each participating company to guide investors through the salient points of each presentation.

The events are free to investors, so please register to secure your place. Seminars will be run in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Full details and registration for upcoming events.


Brief interviews with each company representative were filmed on the day. The Sydney videos are available to view and the Melbourne events will be loaded when available:
