While a company’s corporate broker remains its primary interface with the market, management teams increasingly take comfort from an independent view of its relations with the investment community.
The US and continental European corporate practice of complementing investment banking and broking advisers with investor relations professionals has gained traction across most global markets in recent years. Hydra’s senior consultants in this area speak ‘the language of the market’, having worked first-hand as practitioners in equity capital firms.
Focused squarely on improving market sentiment towards our clients through better engagement with shareholders and other investors, our team is able to advise boards at all key stages of their companies’ investment journey, from IPO to secondary listings, capital raisings, agreed and hostile M&A and optimising the composition of a shareholder base.
Our programmes are, in turn, complemented by dedicated Hydra resource in digital communications, compliant IR website development and the production of financial publications.
Core services offered include:
- Shareholder analysis
- Peer group ownership analysis
- Investor targeting
