The Intelligence Council offers an increasingly balanced global perspective, with buy-side professionals and IROs in the US, UK, Europe, Asia and Australia participating in the programme, it said.
The society’s members have now been given the opportunity to join the Intelligence Council at a discounted rate.
Maria Hunt, the society’s general manager, said: "We believe that this partnership will bring significant benefits to our members across the Middle East. Assisting companies obtain access to research is key to helping IROs and investors communicate more efficiently and transparently and we are delighted to support the development of the Intelligence Program in the region."
The programme includes ongoing best practices reports as well as access to Rivel's Perspectives series, which reveals on a quarterly basis how buy-side professionals make critical investment decisions and explores their outlook for the equity markets.
