Investor relations

We can help you implement an involved and proactive approach to managing investor relations programmes.

Who are we?

We help clients progress in a challenging financial world with confidence, providing the platform to list on global stock exchanges and keep pace with change and investor relations. Our teams support boards at all levels of maturity with ever-changing regulation, governance and shareholder engagement.

We are the UK’s largest share registrar, investor analyser and professional services secretarial team.

How can we help?

The increasingly complex secondary market has drastically emphasised the need for companies to take a more involved and proactive approach to managing investor relations programmes.

Investor intelligence is crucial to developing corporate strategy, and with regulatory changes impacting the corporate landscape, having access to a range of qualitative and insightful support is vital to its continued success.

Our in-group investor relations specialists, Orient Capital, are the largest analyser of share registers globally, supporting over 1,800 listed companies in multiple markets with their investor relations’ responsibilities and requirements.

Through market-leading share analysis, our innovative platform and reporting solutions enable our clients to understand and quantify institutional investment and intention. This seamlessly flows into our proprietary system, ‘miraqle’, which provides key business functionality when in the office and on the road.

Our services can be tailored to meet your requirements:

  • Shareholder analysis and identification
  • Our ‘miraqle’ platform, available through desktop and dedicated mobile apps
  • Qualified investor targeting
  • Sector and market intelligence
  • Perception studies
  • Webcasting services – from results and Capital Market days through to virtual AGMs
  • Proxy solicitation and corporate governance advice (via our DFK team)
  • Bondholder identification and restructuring support (via our DFK team)

Why are we different from our competitors?

Through Orient Capital, we have ensured we can offer our clients an internal IR capability – a key factor to our success. This real-time access to the register is a major benefit of our integrated solution, improving costs for our clients, and immediate synergies such as ‘linking’ it to your shareholder register or company secretarial obligations.

Our team contains many longstanding industry professionals with investment banking and related experience, to ensure we deliver the best available support alongside a competitive advantage against any anticipated or unanticipated requirements.

Security of data and compliance with all evolving regulations is critical to our business, and by offering the opportunity to centralise all key registration and investor relations functions we are confident in providing a complete and dedicated solution across your team.

We call this the OC Standard.
