Valor IR Consulting

Valor IR Consulting

www.valorinvestmentsllc.com

My company was created in 2015 to assist foreign-domiciled companies in their communications with American and British institutional investors.

For the last 40 years, I have been actively involved in the global investment markets, in both fixed income and public equity, as an institutional broker, and, for the last 14 year, as a senior portfolio manager for one of America’s largest corporate pension plans. My experience initially taught me and has reaffirmed ever since that first-class communications are an essential component in the building of long-term building relationships between the publicly listed company and its shareholders.

My focus on non-US companies is in direct response to the challenges posed by geography, language, investment culture and regulatory environment, factors that all add to the complexity of the dialogue between the two parties. But, with the right guidance and coaching, corporate executives, Board members and IR officers can maximize their interactions with their shareholders, building knowledge, understanding and trust.
A strong IR presence has long been recognized as a major contributor to the strength and resilience of the stock price. Many companies will experience, at some stage, a weak quarter or an unanticipated event that threatens to derail the stock. The company’s response at that time will demonstrate to the markets and send a clear message as to whether the company can weather the storm or be more permanently damaged by the problem. Investors with a comprehensive understanding of a company’s DNA, through high-class IR communications, are more likely to be patient in times of adversity.

Valor IR Consulting offers three major services:
              Written adaptation of home country corporate communications for the English-speaking institutional markets;
              Personal coaching for corporate officers preparing for conference calls, non-deal roadshows and conference presentations;
              Crisis response communications

If you would be interested in hearing more about these specialized services, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Rivel Research Group

Rivel Research Group

www.rivel.com

With more than 25 years in the business, conducting over 150 perception studies per year, and working with companies on 6 continents, Rivel is the largest global perception study provider.

Rivel studies offer actionable insight that a company needs to keep pace with today’s fluid environment for investor communications, such as identifying key opportunities, uncovering potential vulnerabilities (and possible triggers for activists) and helping ensure that its investment appeals are better appreciated among its core constituency.

Rivel provides companies the unique opportunity to gauge perceptions across multiple perspectives – the investment community, senior management and the board – in its newest offering Rivel 360˚. This perception research not only allows you to assess how investors and analysts are aligned with company executives and directors, but also confirm alignment within the C-suite and boardroom.

Rivel has 6 key differentiators:

1. Objective

Research is our only business, with our advice driven solely by direct feedback we receive from the investment community. It is unaffected by investment banking or consulting-type relationships. It is not guided by other services that we offer. What you receive is 100% objective data.

2. Qualitative

Nearly half of the questions we ask in our survey projects are open-ended. These discussion questions allow our executive interviewers to probe beneath the surface, getting at the deeper meanings behind answers.

3. Quantitative

Measuring intangible processes like building relationships with the investment community can be difficult. Qualitative feedback alone can only provide a “feel” for what is going on. Our meticulous quantification delivers information that is precise, credible and insightful, as well as supportive of the qualitative data.

4. Comparative

For the purposes of benchmarking, Rivel has conducted research and archived data on over 1,000 investor research projects. Comparing quantified results to other companies and over time puts the data into the context you need to assess past, present and future performance, as well as trends affecting your firm and industry.

5. Reliable

Our market intelligence is obtained using proven marketing research methodologies. We do not rely on anecdotal information garnered from a variety of different sources. A key strength inherent in our sample design is the ability to interview the right people. Additionally, all of Rivel’s research is comprehensive and representative.

6. Actionable

While fundamental investor research is the basis for our advice, it simply isn’t enough. We deliver findings, make sense of them, put them into context and provide you with action steps. In-person presentations to management teams and boards are a key part of this process as having a third-party in Rivel deliver the research findings is more impactful.

Emperor

Emperor

FTSE giant or newly-established enterprise, we deliver reporting that brings clients more.

Why Emperor?

We’re experts in producing corporate reports that people want to pick up, read and act on. When a direct, skilfully executed approach is needed, we’re trusted to deliver. But it’s the way we listen to and work with our clients that makes our approach different.

For us, there’s more to reporting than delivering an exceptional end product. We’re just as focused on building the strong relationships that will help us achieve it. That’s because improving the reporting process leads to clearer strategic thinking throughout.

Two decades of reporting experience tells us to listen intently to the people behind the financials. We know that stakeholders who feel fully engaged in the process become even more connected to their company’s progress − financially and otherwise.

You could say we help organisations to focus on what really matters. What’s certain is that our approach leads to unified thinking and a single plan of action that everyone can get behind. The result? Inspiring reports and a more intelligent way of working.

Our services encompass reporting, digital, brand and engagement:

• Annual reports
• Corporate websites
• Corporate branding and identity
• Employee engagement
• Sustainability communications
• Corporate and investor presentations
• Roadshow and investor day communications

Investor Perceptions

Investor Perceptions

Investor Perceptions is a leading provider of authoritative and considered investor feedback to the boardrooms of UK and European companies. IP delivers an independent perspective into how shareholders and the key underweight institutions view a company, its management and its prospects. We analyse in depth the key factors that collectively define a company's investment proposition and ultimately determine the valuation the market places on the shares.

An insightful perception study is an important and powerful management tool, both from a strategic planning and a corporate governance perspective. Being aware of the opinions and views of investors assists companies to improve their communication with the market and to ensure the investment proposition is properly understood and is reflected in the valuation of the shares, which in turn will influence its cost of capital.

Jones and Palmer

Jones and Palmer

The "20 second" intro to what we do
Public companies have an obligation to communicate with a range of stakeholders (mainly shareholders) to demonstrate that they are well managed and generating value. We work with the management, marketing staff and PR agencies to collate, structure, brand and deliver those messages. That's it!

and here's how we do it
We listen to your story, because every company is unique. We research your industry and peers. We gather your past communications and look where we can empower the brand. We develop a strategy to exceed your compliance needs and wow the stakeholders. We execute great project management in the delivery of reports and websites.

...and we do it with style, discipline and panache.
