While the world of consumer finance experiences new regulatory initiatives, intense competition and the surge in online alternatives, companies that keep a consistent focus on the balance sheet will be rewarded over time. Investors are looking for best-in-class risk-adjusted returns. Companies need to communicate realistic strategic goals, both short- and long-term, strengthening management’s credibility and the company’s reputation.
Leveraging our deep experience in all areas of capital markets, ICR’s financial services communications team can assume the analyst’s role to fine-tune a company’s investment thesis and overall positioning of the company’s story to the Street and the media. We provide management with candid and often challenging advice, instead of trying to figure out what they want to hear. Solid and deep connections with the buy-side, sell-side and key members of the media provide sector intelligence and market entreé for our clients.
