No Contracts

Working as a partner with our clients, we don’t use contracts. Our average retention rate is nine years, and many clients have been with us for more than fifteen years. With our service-oriented and client-focused approach, we’ve become one of the oldest IR firms in the U.S. Based out of Cleveland, OH, we are off Wall Street with a Midwest culture that focuses on relationships to give our clients continual value as the capital markets constantly change.

Micro and Small-Cap Specialists

  • Our clients typically range in market cap between $15 million and $4 billion in all types of industries including Consumer Discretionary, Community Banking and Financials, Consumer Staples, Information Technology, Materials, and Industrials.
  • New clients often come to us with a small number of large shareholders and limited institutional ownership with low trading volumes. Our clients usually don’t have many investment banking requirements, making sell-side coverage and equity sponsorships challenging for them.
  • Through our investor relations programs, we customize an approach to assist our clients, connecting them with the investor community and building a compelling story about their business strategy and leadership teams.
