Testimonials

Proud to partner with some of the world’s most respected companies, introducing them to key investors throughout Europe

It was our best European campaign ever. I have kept records since we first began to visit Europe. Your mixture of in-person and virtual was very effective.

Director of IR, US large cap utility

Thank you for an exceptional few days of marketing. Very pleased with your services and capabilities. Great roadshow.

VP of IR, US mid cap consumer cyclical

There's a clear differentiation vs. the sell-side; no MiFID II barriers, no obligatory hedge funds, full management of the event, post event report.

VP of IR, US large cap technology

Thank you for setting up the meetings. We were very happy with both the turnout and quality of investors. Where do I sign for a retainer agreement?

Manager of IR, mid cap Canadian company

The post-meeting feedback report is most useful. Thanks again for a great trip.

VP of IR, US mid cap industrial

Phoenix-IR knows all the key people in all the key institutions across Europe and they have excellent logistics. Excellent preparation and follow-up interviews.

VP of IR, US large cap industrial

Independent firms such as Phoenix-IR are an effective means for companies to gain access to long-term investors rather than high revenue generating clients.

London-based global equity fund manager

We prefer companies travelling with independent providers and not working with brokers for corporate access.

Zurich-based US equity fund manager

With firms like Phoenix-IR, there are none of the conflicts of interest that lead investment banks to give corporate access to the best generators of trading volumes rather than long term investors.

London-based global equity fund manager

It is very difficult to give feedback to market participants such as the sell-side because we don’t know how they will use our information. I’ve no problem providing my views to Phoenix-IR because they are independent and I trust them.
