On May 30th 2018, the communications advisory firm Hallvarsson & Halvarsson organises the Nordics largest conference for financial communications –The Nordic Financial Communication Summit. The keynote speaker is Pippa Malmgren, one of the world's most appreciated trendsetters. She is an author and former financial adviser to, among others, President George W. Bush. Other confirmed speakers include Ann Grevelius, Chairman of the board at Opti, Lauri Rosendahl, President of Nasdaq Nordic, Hans Lindberg, former State Secretary of the Ministry of Finance of Sweden and Magnus Billing, CEO of Alecta.

Stakeholder communication, whether it's with journalists, analysts or investors, is becoming increasingly important. Hallvarsson & Halvarsson, Sweden's leading financial communications agency, is therefore organising The Nordics largest conference focusing on financial communications. The theme is "Trust - in an Age of Transparency”. 

Among the topics that will be discussed by leading industry professionals during the conference are the rise of populism's impact on companies and markets, M&A and IPO trends and management teams’ strong focus on investor relations.

“Financial communications is more important than ever in order to create trust in a market with many stakeholders, channels and sources. How can we excel at delivering relevant information to the right recipient and what information do the recipients actually want? With this conference, we strive to create a meeting point for all stakeholders in financial communication where trends, challenges and solutions can be discussed” says Johan Ramsten, CEO of Hallvarsson & Halvarsson.

During Hallvarsson & Halvarsson's 20-year plus history, the company has organised several annual activities, including the Business Journalism Awards and an annual seminar on trends in annual reports. This year, Hallvarsson & Halvarsson gathers several events relating to financial communications in one single major conference - Nordic Financial Communication Summit 2018.

Program and more speakers will be announced shortly.
