Features & Benefits


Equal

Access companies at the same time - now you can be part of the investor roadshow.

For the first time you can now access the same information at the same time as institutions, by becoming part of the investor roadshow. Simply add the companies you want to meet, and we will do the rest.

Just the facts

No more noise - clarity of information for an informed decision.

With the impact of MiFID II leading to decreasing levels of available research, individual investors need an alternative to either having to pay for research or searching for what can be unreliable content online. We give you access to the facts from management so you can make a more informed investment decision.

Interactive

Your opinion matters - live two-way engagement directly with the management team.

Access live presentations through a unique URL that is specific to you. Our functionality enables you to directly ask management questions, in order to get a greater understanding of the investment opportunity. Through our polling and feedback functionality you can directly voice your opinion to management so they can have a clear undiluted understanding of your views and that of all investors.

No need to travel

Direct live management team presentations across any device from any location.

We let technology do the travelling, so you don’t have to. Time is precious for everyone, so by removing the barrier of having to physically travel to meet a company, you can use your time more effectively regardless of the number of shares you own or where you live. We make meeting companies easy, add the companies you want to meet, respond to the invitation and access the meeting on any device from any location. Investor Meet Company – it’s really that simple.

Flexible Access

Access companies in-between results. Demand-Driven and Company-Driven functionality.

Our unique functionality allows you to notify companies directly via your dashboard that you want to meet in-between reporting periods. This is totally at the company’s discretion. We open the Demand Driven Meeting (DDM) function 8 weeks after the company’s last reporting date and shut it 8 weeks before the next update (there is no DDM function if the company reports quarterly). The DDM window is open for 10 weeks. Simply click the DDM button on your dashboard and we will do the rest. If the meeting goes ahead it will be arranged just like any other. Should a company want to present to you in between reporting periods that’s covered too. A Company Driven Meeting (CDM) enables a company to directly invite you to a presentation relating to a company announcement. For example they may have won a significant contract, or made an acquisition, and this way they can add context around the announcement.

You decide

Always be invited to presentations from companies that matter to you. Accept or decline - it’s up to you.

We are a mere conduit, you decide the companies you want to meet, and we’ll do the rest. You will always be invited to every presentation from every company live that you follow, until you decide to no longer follow them, just accept or decline the invitation. We understand that circumstances can change so you can amend your status at any time up to 48 hours before the meeting. Don’t worry if you miss it – it’s always available on demand and you will be invited to the next one.

Key Dates

Know in advance when your companies release results.

Never miss the most important announcements from the companies that matter to you and know well in advance when your companies will release their results. By following a company, you will automatically receive notification of the date of the results as well as being invited to become part of the investor roadshow. Accept the invitation and you will be reminded the day before the meeting, that way you will never miss a thing.

Fair

Available to all investors - new or existing, regardless of the number of shares they own or where they live.

Companies want to engage with Individual Investors- that’s a fact. Now they can. The problem is that up until now there has been no central platform for Individual investors and companies to connect. Individual Investors are spread across the UK and they don’t all use the same wealth manager! The company’s corporate broker can't access you directly anyway. We believe that all investors should be treated “fairly, equally and on a non-discriminatory basis” We are not alone in seeing the benefits of engaging fairly and equally with Individual Investors.

On Demand 24/7

Access to historic presentations, transcripts and Q&A’s all in one place

Access the full content from any historic presentation 24/7- all from one place. So, if you missed the meeting: you can watch it, if you can’t remember want was said: it will be transcribed, and if you want to find out what questions were asked: they are there too. From your dashboard you can see all the meetings you have attended, with detailed analysis. You can also use the record of your engagement towards your qualifying structured Continued Professional Development (CPD) hours if they apply to you. It’s yours and it’s independently verified.

Address Liquidity

Address the disproportionate impact and liquidity issues that smaller trades cause through direct engagement.

Regardless of the market you are listed on, Individual Investors can disproportionately impact your liquidity and share price. As an example, 84% of all AIM listed companies have an average trade size below £10,000. Small trades set prices and can have a disproportionate impact on the value of your company, so make sure you are engaging with Individual Investors directly.

Targeted

Meet Individual Investors that want to meet you. Know who the investors are that want to engage with you, what they want to hear and connect with them directly.

Investor Meet Company is exactly that, Individual Investors register on the platform and add the companies that matter to them. Your time is not wasted - one meeting for all Individual Investors that have selected to meet you, as part of your investor roadshow. Connecting the right people at the right time, through direct engagement can only increase trust, liquidity, and transparency.

Demonstrate Outcomes

Analyse engagement - use accurate data to understand the views of Individual Investors

Detailed anonymised analytics of all your Individual Investor engagement. Granular data, meaning you can understand the views of investors and the perception of your company in the market. From the questions they ask, the polling responses and the feedback they give, you can enhance your presentation messaging.

Regulation

Deliver high level Corporate Governance reporting through verified engagement.

Whichever Corporate Governance code you follow it’s important to report meaningfully and demonstrate outcomes in relation to your investor engagement. Through your dashboard, you can download the Investor Meet Company (IMC) Investor Engagement Statement which provides independent verified statistics that are measurable and specific to you. You can now demonstrate and report meaningfully to either the FRC or QCA codes.

Continued Engagement

Unique Company-Driven or Demand-Driven meeting function. Access Investors in-between results and address volatility from misinformation.

Through our unique functionality investors can notify you directly via your dashboard should they want to meet in-between reporting periods. This is totally at your discretion as made clear to all users. We open the Demand Driven Meeting (DDM) function 8 weeks after your last reporting date and close it 8 weeks before your next update (there is no DDM function if you report Quarterly). The DDM meeting window is open for 10 weeks and enables Individual Investors to request engagement should the need arise. We act as a mere conduit for a Company Driven Meeting (CDM) enables you to directly invite and engage Individual Investors to present to and give them clarity around a company announcement. You may have won a significant contract, made an acquisition, or simply want to put context around the announcement. Through 3 clicks on your dashboard you can directly arrange a presentation with all Individual Investors that follow you. This enables you to maintain dialogue and understand the needs and expectations of investors. You can directly address any questions or mis- information that may be impacting investor perception.

Build Relationships

Direct interactive engagement with Individual Investors via Q&A’s, polling and surveys builds trust and confidence.

Through live interactive engagement, Investor Meet Company enables two-way communication with Individual Investors. Questions are submitted during the presentation through Direct Messaging (DM). The questions raised by investors are only visible to you and any other presenters NOT the attendees. You are under no obligation to answer them during the presentation, it is totally at your discretion as made clear to all users. You may however find that a certain slide sparks interest with investors, resulting in multiple questions appearing. In this instance you can choose to address the topic if you wish to answer in the meeting. Once the presentation has concluded, we provide you with a digital form that lists the questions which you can chose to either answer or delete - it’s up to you. We ask that you respond to the question form within 24 hours post the meeting in order that all investors can be better informed. The Q&A will then be available as part of the on-demand feature of the platform. Through our polling feature, you can get instant feedback from questions you want to have answers to. Are you a shareholder? Do you vote at the AGM? Which of our new branding do you prefer? Whatever you want to ask - you can. Through our post event survey you get real undiluted feedback directly from the Individual Investors. Standardised questions enable us to give you feedback that helps shape future engagement, as well as the ability for investors to have open feedback (limited to 300 words) should they wish. Regardless of the corporate governance code you follow, you can now demonstrate a clear understanding of the views and expectations of Individual Investors. You now have all the data to report meaningfully.

Practical

No need to travel. Communicate effectively with Individual Investors wherever they are.

We let technology do the travelling so you or the investor don’t have to. Time is precious for everyone, so by removing the barrier of having to physically travel, you can use your time more effectively. Through a link on your website to Investor Meet Company and by adding a specific meeting date and time on your RNS, you can enable any Individual Investor to register and attend your presentation. We make managing engagement with Individual Investors easy and practical at scale, through one platform.

Efficient

One meeting, one hour, one platform. Now you can address all Individual Investors at the same time.

We make engagement with Individual Investors efficient. We take one slot as part of your investor roadshow where you present to all Individual Investors at the same time, regardless of the number of shares they own or where they are located. Now you can address the whole market not just the institutions in one single roadshow - now that’s efficient!

Who is best at articulating your investment case?

You are. Live or on demand it’s you informing investors, just the facts for an informed decision.

With the impact of MiFID II, leading to decreasing levels of available research, Individual Investors need an alternative to either having to pay for research or searching for what can be unreliable content online. We believe that you are best placed to communicate how the company is governed and performing by maintaining direct dialogue with investors. Just access to the facts directly from you so Individual Investors can make an informed decision.
