CAPITAL MARKET COMMUNICATIONS AND INVESTOR RELATIONS

Capital markets and IR are in our DNA

Founded in 1988 as a financial PR consultancy, we are trusted advisers to the management and boards of more than 60 quoted companies stretching across four continents.

We have unrivalled experience supporting high-growth small cap and AIM stocks as well as some of the world’s biggest organisations including FTSE 250 and FTSE 100 stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange as well as the New York, Hong Kong, Moscow, Nairobi, Lagos and Cairo exchanges.

We also draw on our strong networks of financial media and capital markets professionals to offer our clients an honest appraisal of how they are viewed and, ahead of any transactions, how these may be perceived.

Financial calendar support

We support and guide our clients through the reporting cycle connecting them with the buy & sell side and media, as well as credit and ESG rating agencies. We provide regular market intelligence, to keep them up-to-date with the views of the investment community and financial media.

We draft announcements and presentations, conduct rigorous Q&A rehearsal sessions and offer insightful feedback to ensure our clients confidently convey their investment stories.

Investor Relations

Competing for capital in a changing Investor Relations landscape

A number of powerful new forces are pushing companies to rethink how they engage with investors.

Equity issuers are taking more direct control of their IR programmes to ensure their participation in the debt and capital markets is maximized and that the make-up of their share register reflects their corporate strategies.

Working closely with clients and brokers, we provide independent assistance that empowers issuers to take full control of their IR programme through a 360° service offering:

  • Investor Perception Studies
  • Development of equity story
  • Institutional investor targeting
  • Proxy advisory
  • Investor database maintenance
  • Independent corporate access
  • Capital market days
  • IR Benchmarking
  • Financial reporting

 

Services can be provided as:

  • An extension of the IR department
  • An outsourced IR function
  • A provider of insights and data that inform the IR function

Transaction support

With our long history of financial PR, we have unrivalled expertise across the gamut of capital markets transactions. We have supported clients through initial public offerings, stock market flotations, mergers and acquisitions and capital fundraisings. We have experience on both sides of a deal, whether hostile or friendly, offering strategic advice and support.

Integrated strategic communications

Society is changing. Investors are often as concerned with a company’s broader purpose and non-financial information as they are with its numbers. We have first-class expertise in developing engaging corporate narratives around factors, such as ESG, sustainability and diversity and inclusion, that enhance the investment story by providing a fuller, rounder picture of a company’s ‘true’ position.
