Investor Relations


We know that CEOs of listed companies spend at least 20-25% of their time (for CFOs up to 50%) on IR.
Having access to experienced IR professionals who can function either as the company’s in-house IR Manager or trusted external adviser, ensures this time is well spent and meets market expectations for best practice.

Investor Relations

Established in 2000, FIRST Advisers pioneered the concept of IR in Australia as integral to both strategy and long term value creation. It is much more than an extension of corporate PR or marketing and, as a specialist IR Consultancy, we have demonstrated this by providing strategic advice and support to more than 100 listed companies in Australia and offshore.

Every company is different and we have the flexibility to provide whatever support or services is needed to execute high quality, tailored IR programs. Our clients chose how they want to work with us, either as a fully insourced investor relations department, or to supplement an internal capability. Our IR advice is underpinned by decades of experience in financial markets as well as exposure to a wide cross section of corporate scenarios.

Most importantly, we know how to communicate, distilling complex financial or strategic information into clear and simple messages through presentations for investor briefings, investor newsletters, corporate videos and interviews, ASX announcements and annual reports.

FIRST Advisers offers advisory services to help companies and their Boards to navigate the changing governance landscape and to embed effective, relevant and contemporary governance practices that are properly aligned with their business and easy to implement.

We also provide company secretarial services for Australian companies including cost effective outsourcing of compliance, governance or company secretarial assistance during crisis or overflow periods.
