Whether you are selling your family business, working in a private equity fund, owning the responsibility for investor relations in a listed company, or raising money for a growth company, you know that clear and trustworthy communication is the key to raising capital, and investing capital in the best projects.

Corporate Communications has since day one assisted our clients with financial communication across sectors, in close cooperation with investment banks and the legal advisory community. Today, financial communication is one of our core focus areas.

Investor Relations

Building knowledge and credibility in the financial markets, while also establishing good relationships with analysts and policy makers, is crucial to reducing capital costs for the company.

  • Development of equity story and positioning
  • Development of investor presentations
  • Corporate governance consulting
  • Financial reporting
  • Advisory related to regulatory issues
  • Planning and preparation for investor meetings and roadshows
  • Shareholder base analysis and identification of potential new investors
