- the current business development
of Vienna Insurance Group.
The schedule included a total of 13 bank conferences and roadshows in the major financial centres of Europe and the United States in 2013. During the bond roadshow alone, which was aimed at issuing a subordinated bond of EUR 500 million, Group management spoke with more than 50 investors in London, Frankfurt, Vienna and Paris. Around 70% of these investors actually subscribed to the bond in the end, thereby helping to make the placement extremely successful.
In addition to direct contact with the capital market, the importance of online communication is steadily increasing. In response to this ongoing trend, Investor Relations expanded and updated both the information available on the website at as well as the VIG IR app available free of charge for the iPad in 2013.
