The interdependency between investors and corporate decision makers is of crucial importance. In his research, Jochen Becker centers these relationships on an interpersonal level – with a focus on marketing strategy topics. Concretely, he explores how relational perceptions (e.g., trust) affect the quality and amount of information exchanged – which subsequently results in a higher level of mutual commitment. To analyze this broader research questions, Jochen applies different investor settings and data sources whereby he relies on primary survey data (on the C-level) and on secondary data, which capture the quality of investor relations.
