The IGB Group is an independent investor relations and strategic communications firm that works with small and mid-cap companies to influence key stakeholders and enable them to meet critical capital market and business objectives. Since our founding in 2001, we have developed a strong reputation for providing management and boards with differentiated counsel, unparalleled service, and dependable execution that produces tangible results.
The IGB Group serves as a trusted advisor to a diverse group of clients, including public and private companies, established industry leaders, and emerging innovators across a broad range of industries. We partner with management teams and boards to communicate a market-tested investment thesis and corporate narrative in the competition for capital and in the pursuit of strategic business outcomes.
The IGB Group enables clients to navigate a constantly evolving investor relations and media landscape. How corporate information is accessed, interpreted and acted upon by important and diverse stakeholders continues to rapidly change. A deep understanding of the changes that are transforming the global capital markets and reshaping the media landscape informs all of IGB’s programming, counsel, and ability to assemble the optimal team for a given client.
The IGB Group is a team of seasoned advisors and implementers with extensive multi-industry experience in investor relations, capital markets, public relations and specialized communication services. Through our diverse experience, we have helped clients to lower their cost of capital, build brands, increase sales, manage crises and complex issues, and achieve favorable outcomes in transactions such as IPOs, secondary offerings, M&A, and proxy contests.
Proactive Engagement with the Capital Markets
With the rise of passive investors, a declining sell-side universe, and regulatory changes impacting how the buy side utilizes and pays for research and corporate access, it is more critical than ever for issuers to actively drive their engagement with the investment community.
By combining a deep understanding of the global capital markets and investor decision-making with expertise in communicating a credible and compelling investment story, we help clients develop a shareholder base that is appropriate for a company’s investment merits in support of a fair long-term valuation.
Building Support for Critical Business Objectives
Whether the objective is to raise capital, achieve a fair valuation, increase sales, enter new markets, or manage a crisis, it is imperative that companies take steps to actively manage their financial brands and corporate reputations.
Skillfully utilized, no tool is more powerful and efficient for building support for critical business objectives with shareholders, customers, employees and other important stakeholders than a financial and business PR strategy.
The IGB Group works with management teams to ensure that clear, impactful and actionable messages are delivered to diverse audiences through print, digital, social and broadcast channels.
