We believe they provide some of the best share register analysis in the industry which gives us confidence when using the data at board level and also for investor targeting. On top of this, the team are always approachable, helpful and professional, all of which makes RD:IR a pleasure to be associated with.”

“RD:IR’s team ran a very useful targeting exercise which has been the basis for our investor targeting refresh.”

“We find the IR InTouch platform an invaluable CRM tool especially with regards to recording all our meetings and notes. The system produces insightful roadshow packs which incorporate all share register and peer analysis information, which are useful for our busy meeting schedules. We have also started using the offline meeting function, allowing the recording of notes in an efficient and user friendly manner even on the move. Additionally, with a focused investor base on the CRM platform, we know we can reach thousands of relevant investors, globally, at a touch of a button.”

Lisa Williams, Debenhams plc

“I am a serial customer –  I cannot imagine running my IR function without the support of RD:IR on the share register analysis and CRM fronts. They are incredibly easy to deal with, they really understand the way IR works, including the pressures. They pitch their services at the sweet spot between responsive and proactive. Their information is clear and comprehensive.”

Jill Sherratt, AA plc

“I have used RD:IR’s proxy solicitation service through two acquisitions and strongly recommend them. The team was very supportive and the analysis comprehensive. I was very impressed with how they ran the process in each instance and I was kept fully informed at every stage.”
