Investor Relations & Corporate Access
We help senior management teams plan, develop and execute targeted investor relations strategies that clearly articulate strategic goals, market opportunities and growth plans through an appropriate and balanced mix of communication tactics. We ensure our clients’ stories are delivered to investors and the public in a timely and effective manner to help make an impact, support valuations and aid corporate decisions and actions.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Positioning and Strategy
A proper messaging strategy can not only build relationships with the right investors, but also prompt a reasonable valuation of your company. With our deep understanding of the current market, we help clients formulate a precise market positioning platform, as well as strategies that set them up for success.
Share Price Analysis
Using both fundamental and technical methods, we develop comprehensive analyses of companies’ share prices. This research helps our clients clearly understand how they have performed at a given price level in the past, whether the current prices fully reflect the company’s true value and predictions for future stock price activity.
To better connect our clients with quality investor meetings, we customize and coordinate roadshows, corporate days, field trips and various other activities that provide company representatives a chance to engage with potential investors. Our targeted and detail-oriented approach has helped facilitate countless opportunities for exchange and relationship-building.
