Our extensive corporate communications and capital markets experience provide us with a comprehensive knowledge base
We are an independent Investor Relations and Corporate Communications consulting firm based in Toronto. With more than 60 years of combined experience, we have the strategic insights, skills and network of relationships to build your capital markets profile. Our mandate is to minimize your cost of capital by attaining a market valuation that fully and fairly reflects the fundamentals and growth potential of your company.
Working closely with our clients, we develop a comprehensive understanding of their businesses and unique investor attributes. Then, in conjunction with senior management, we outline a set of specific measurable capital markets objectives. With these objectives in mind, we then develop a customized investor relations program that is put into action.
We take a hands-on approach when it comes to our clients’ business and are actively involved in the day-to-day rollout of each respective investor relations program. Accordingly, we manage our client roster very closely and limit the number of companies we are working with at any given time.
