Close Dialog with the Capital Market

  • Roadshows for institutional investors and talks with rating agencies
  • Informational events for private investors
  • Capital Markets Day on the corporate strategy

Our corporate strategy aims to create long-term value. We support this strategy through regular and open communication with all capital market participants. We engage with institutional investors and rating agencies in numerous one-on-one meetings, as well as at roadshows and conferences worldwide, and give private investors an insight into BASF at informational events.

In November 2018, we informed analysts and investors about BASF Group’s updated corporate strategy at our Capital Markets Day in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Key topics were our even stronger customer focus, the new financial and nonfinancial targets, and the segment structure going forward.

In 2018, we once again offered special events aimed toward investors who base their investment decisions on sustainability criteria. We outlined in particular our measures for climate protection, energy efficiency, health and safety. In addition, we offered several creditor relations roadshows, where credit analysts and creditors could learn more about our business and financing strategy.

Analysts and investors have confirmed the quality of our financial market communications. We took first place in the “Best ESG communications” and “Best IR website” categories in the annual survey conducted by Britain’s IR Magazine. Germany’s Manager Magazin also recognized BASF at the presentation of its Investors’ Darling awards with second place in the DAX category and first place in the digital communications category. In January 2019, Institutional Investor magazine awarded BASF first place in the “Best IR in Germany” category for its investor relations program.
