Marten & Co


Services for Companies

Clients choose to work with Marten & Co because our team has many years’ in-depth experience of financial markets.  And we know how to present the right information, to the right people.

So, who seeks out our services?  We work with boards, as well as their executives, investor relation teams and advisers, on both private companies looking to float and existing listed companies.

Demand for our high-quality research and services continues to grow: since Marten & Co started up in 2012 , we have worked with a wide range of successful businesses, our readership has increased substantially every year (winning industry awards on the way) and our team has expanded too, from 2 to 35.

Our goal is to help increase awareness and understanding of your company, among a wider range of potential investors in a post MiFID II, RDR and pension reformed world, in a more time and cost effective manner for corporates.   We are also perfectly positioned to assist with a pre IPO note, raising additional capital from previously untapped sources as traditional capital market services fragment, but still want to collaborate with brokers and other advisers. Given this insight, independence and experience we are often invited in early prior to floatation, to project manage IPOs and other capital risings.


We believe that research should be accessible to all investors, not just to those with budgets to pay for it.  That’s why ours is free to read.  We also believe it should be up to date, that readers should be aware if it is sponsored and that the views expressed should be as balanced and independent as possible.

Our research is also insightful, interesting and thorough: our analysts and writers are experts on their sectors and they know exactly what information investors need.  Their initiation notes, which are updated throughout the year, to keep the content fresh and follow on update notes can be turned around quickly and keep content relevant and timely. Post MiFID II investors can still access both our analysts and their models, saving investor relation teams considerable time. For these reasons, companies of all sizes are enquiring about our service.

We make sure our research is brought to the attention of as broad an audience as possible.  It is distributed by email, to more than 27,000 investors, influencers and other decision makers, including fund managers, hedge fund companies, private wealth managers, private client brokers, family offices, but also IFAs, high-net-worth individuals, self-directed investors, public relations professionals, journalists and even investment banks and sell side research analysts. It’s distribution is not restricted by January 2018 MiFID II research restrictions that will substantially impact the reach of investment bank research to only paying investment firms.

And that’s not all.   We also distribute our research through a large and expanding list of selected websites, research platforms, execution-only dealing platforms and share clubs, relationships that have forged over the years, many of which are exclusive.  Also our research is featured consistently in the retail and trade financial press too, spreading the word even more widely. That takes it to an even wider audience, maximising the opportunity to raise the profile of your company but help reduce the time and cost impact.

Investor Relations

More than anything else, investors want to meet the people who run the companies they invest in. We realise though that management time is a precious and rare commodity and so, if your management team is thinking of embarking on more serious investor relations program, then it is vital that their time is used to best advantage, resources are deployed correctly and management are given in depth investor analytics and feedback consistently to monitor progress. Marten & Co we can also organise one-to-one, group and webinar meetings. We are regulated, so can offer advice to the buy side, have a detailed research service which is well read, and authorised to arrange trades with brokers. The quality of audience is therefore a noticeable to other providers.

We appreciate that for most investment banks, investor relations, roadshows and presentations often only make sense in the context of a fundraising and often have a mixed agenda. We are willing to work on a fixed-fee basis, however. We can handle all the logistical side of organising invitations, managing RSVPs, transport arrangements and following up meetings by collecting feedback for you. We pride ourselves on going that extra mile to identify key new potential investors, putting you in touch with the right people and reducing wasted time/meetings.

Capital Raising

We raise capital alongside investment banks – with unique expertise and capabilities in running more effective regional efforts and intermediary offers given our relationships with the platforms. We choose cooperation over profits, so offer no corporate finance advice, and this insight, independence and experience means we are often brought in at the first stage of the process. Please ask us for references of how this has worked in the past.
