The aim of Tryg’s investor relations activities is to enable the market participants to form a well informed view on Tryg as an investment case and value the Tryg share accordingly.
The aim is achieved by providing present and potential investors with factual, relevant and understandable information about Tryg‘s business and financial results. Tryg aims at being easily accessible, proactive and open in its communication.
Tryg complies, at all times, with the prevailing legislation and disclosure regulation for listed companies on the Nasdaq OMX Copenhagen; omxgroup.com. Furthermore, the IR department relays information from IR stakeholders to the Executive Management.
Principles of communication
Tryg’s financial communication with stakeholders is mainly conducted through two channels, releases and meetings with stakeholders.
Releases are either scheduled, such as annual or quarterly reports, routine, such as information on insider trading or ad hoc releases. Tryg releases all information that according to the relevant regulation is deemed relevant for the share price. All releases and company announcements are published in Danish and English. Financial reports are only published in English, however, summaries are included in Danish. Furthermore, an annual profile is published in Danish in connection with the annual report.
All news releases, which are categorised as share price sensitive must be disclosed via a regulatory company announcement prior to information to any other person or group. Announcements must be released through a service provider such as Nasdaq OMX Corporate News Service and with immediate and subsequent release to Finanstilsynet (Danish FSA), Oslo Børs and Oslo ABM. When information is published, the information will be available on tryg.com. For more information on disclosure of company announcements, including leakage, se “Tryg’s rules regarding Tryg A/S’ and subsidiaries adherence to the disclosure obligations as an issuer”.
In addition to the above, Tryg releases IR newsletters that are deemed relevant but not share price sensitive. This can for instance be background information on an insurance specific topic. The IR newsletters can either be distributed through the service provider or through tryg.com. Through IR newsletters, Tryg aims at contributing to further understanding of Tryg and insurance in general among the market participants.
As part of the investor relations activities, Tryg meets with external stakeholders on a regular basis. The meeting activities comprise 1:1 meetings, group presentations and presentations at conferences. In connection with release of quarterly and annual reports, Tryg conducts roadshows presenting the results.
As a general guideline, the IR department shall have at least one representative present at investor meetings in order to align the communication. If this is not possible, the IR department shall be informed about the meeting and the topics discussed. During investor meetings, it is important that the level of disclosure of share price sensitive information is not expanded.
In addition to 1:1s, group meetings and conferences, Tryg hosts a Capital Markets Day every 2-3 year. Institutional investors, analysts and journalists are invited to meet the Executive Board who will present insight into Tryg’s business strategy and financial targets.
At the annual general meeting all shareholders are invited to attend the meeting and meet the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board. Shareholders may propose items to be included on the agenda, ask questions before and at the meeting and vote on issues on the agenda.
The IR department is always ready to answer questions by telephone or email. See contact information on Contact IR. Questions will be answered to extent that it will not require publication of non-disclosed information, violate the competitive considerations or in other ways harms Tryg.
From the last day of the reporting quarter (31 December, 31 March, 30 June and 30 September), Tryg will refrain from investor dialogue until the release of the interim/ annual results.
The IR policy has been approved by Tryg’s Supervisory Board on 10 October 2018.
