Our Services

We offer a complete range of investor relations services.

Our goal is to help each client realize a market capitalization that best reflects the company’s value. We achieve this goal on a daily basis through enhanced visibility and communications and through favorable and credible interactions within the investment community.

We believe that a successful investor relations program depends on a multifaceted approach, including effective strategy and tactical execution.

Strategy

Stern IR emphasizes the importance of strategic planning. Each new client relationship begins with an analysis of the client's investment considerations, including perceived strengths and challenges as well as upcoming news items and milestones.

We then consider a combination of quantitative and qualitative data to help direct our recommendations, developing corporate messaging documents, a client-catered yearly IR calendar, an outreach plan and a sophisticated sell-side and investor targeting analysis program.

See some examples that demonstrate our approach to IR.
