Marten & Co


Services for Companies

Clients choose to work with Marten & Co because our team has many years’ in-depth experience of financial markets.  We know how to present the right information, to new and existing shareholders, to unlock additional capital that many other operators are not set up to do.

We work with asset managers, boards, as well as company executives, investor relations teams and their advisers, with best in class companies or funds looking to raise capital (or improve their rating).

Demand for our high-quality research and capital raising services continues to grow. Since Marten & Co launched in 2012, we have worked with a wide range of successful growing businesses; our readership through our investor hub has increased substantially every year (winning industry awards on the way); and our team has expanded too, from 2 to 25.

Our goal is to help increase awareness and understanding of your company, among a wider range of potential investors in a more socially distanced world, in a post MiFID II, RDR and pension reformed landscape. We do this in a manner that is time and cost-effective for you and when the time is right to raise additional capital. We are perfectly positioned to assist you.


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 and that the views expressed should be as balanced and independent as possible.

Our news and research, through our publishing brand QuotedData, is designed to be insightful, interesting and thorough. Our analysts and writers are experts on their sectors and they know exactly what information investors need.  We write detailed initiation notes, which are updated annually. These are supported by news and update notes, to keep the content fresh 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 now enquiring about our services.

We make sure our research is brought to the attention of as broad an audience as possible.  It is distributed by email to a targeted list, selected from our 35,000 strong database (post GDPR numbers and growing at 500 a month), which includes investors, influencers and other decision makers. Our research reaches the full spectrum of investors 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.

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. Many of these are through relationships that have forged over the years and are exclusive.  Furthermore, our research is featured consistently in the retail and trade financial press, which helps to spread the word even more widely.

If you would like to find out more about how we could help your business, or you know of a well regarded analyst looking for a new position, please give us a call.  In the meantime, why not subscribe to our free research at

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 programme, 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. At Marten & Co we can also organise one-to-one, group and webinar meetings. You will notice quickly the quality of audience is higher than you are used to because we have experienced sales staff which have a deep understanding of your company and have a deeper relationship with the buyside (we are regulated to advise and offer other useful services they need such as research, news and events), which helps us vet attendees to those who can invest in your company. We are also authorised to arrange trades with brokers, unlike many other operators, and collect orders and feedback after an event,

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. Also with MiFID II many buy side accounts have cut off the majority of brokers, impacting on their ability to operate. 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 meet your objective, whether that is identifying key new potential investors, or existing shareholders, we will put you in touch with the right people and reduce wasted time/meetings.

Capital Raising

Increased distribution – We raise more capital with unique expertise and capabilities in running more effective regional fund and wealth manager efforts, also intermediary offers given our relationships with the platforms. We choose cooperation over profits, so offer no corporate finance advice, but choose to work with the best/most suitable advisers and distributors given the characteristics of each deal. This insight, independence and experience means we are brought in at the first stage of the process. Please ask us for references of how this has worked in the past.
