Supporting SME Fundraising through Investor Relations and PR Activities

Equity research is not only a way of keeping in contact with existing investors and stimulating liquidity, but also a means of reaching new institutional and retail investors. Furthermore, it is an increasingly important way for companies to capture information on their investors and analytics on how investors respond to their research – especially for small firms with typically smaller budgets.

These tools help companies focus their IR and PR spend when fundraising. Having the right partners contributes to lowering the cost of capital – something we’re committed to.

NEX Exchange works with a number of equity research providers. ACF Research cover companies such as Ace Liberty & Stone [NEX:ALSP].

All Street Research have championed a pay-per-view model, offering an additional level of independence, and have provided coverage to Capital for Colleagues [NEX:CFCP], Good Energy Group [NEX:GOOD], Ashley House [NEX:ASH] and Sandal [NEX:SAND]. Edison and Hardman & Co. are other research partners working with us.

We understand the importance of directing accessible communications to the right investor group and actively support our companies’ investors relationships by running events at the exchange. We also collaborate with StockTube to give companies wide reaching exposure through hubs such as Proactive Investor and London South East. The use of both videos and podcasts provides a clearer, more engaging form of communication to those making decisions to invest, as Capital Connections TV and WeConvene explain below.
