The Alpha IR Group is a holistic investor relations and transactions/crisis consulting firm that protects, enhances and builds the investment brands of America’s leading companies. We bring significant Wall Street, financial, and large agency experience to our clients, while retaining a small company, holistic approach. With deep sector expertise and senior-driven programs, Alpha IR is the right choice to manage our clients’ reputations, credibility, and ultimately, their valuation.
Through multiple decades and over 750 partnership clients, Alpha IR developed and refined its proprietary “SMART IR” process. This proprietary process guides our programs from their strategic foundations, through every element of their preparation and execution. SMART IR and a commitment to improving our clients’ Return on Investment (ROI) in their IR function is what defines our culture and is what we refer to as the “Alpha Way.”
“As a financial professional that wears multiple hats, I know I can count on the Alpha team to bring both a strategic and executional focus to our IR program each and every day. They’ve become a trusted member of our team.”
We chose the moniker Alpha as it symbolizes our direct relationship and understanding of our clients’ primary IR stakeholder, the institutional investor. Buy-side investors are said to be “seeking alpha” in their quest to beat the market. In our role as IR consultants we use our research, communication and visibility tools to help our clients better understand and influence Wall Street. What better way to do that than to start with the investor’s primary motivation, the pursuit of alpha.
Alpha IR was founded in early 2012 and has become one of the country’s premiere independent IR and transaction/crisis consultancies. Our leaders have over 100 years of combined buy-side, sell-side, investment banking/services, and IR consulting experience at both large and small agencies. Our founder is the former co-founder of Ashton Partners, which grew from two to 75 consultants over its ten-year history as an independent agency (1997-2007).
