Excellence in Investor Relations and Financial Communications Your Link With the Global Investment Community
With its headquarters in New York and presence in London and Athens, Capital Link has been active since 1995 in the field of Investor Relations and Financial Communication. Its activities focus mainly on three areas: 1) Linking companies with strategic and institutional investors, bankers, analysts, and the financial media in Europe and the United States, 2) American Closed-End Funds and ETFs, 3) Listed shipping Companies. Capital Link's programs combine IR, IT and financial media in one comprehensive package enabling Companies to maximize their penetration and recognition in the global investment community.
Capital Link maintains close collaboration with the three main US Stock Exchanges (New York Stock Exchange, American Stock Exchange (now part of NYSE) and NASDAQ), the London Stock Exchange, the Athens Stock Exchange as well as numerous companies in Greece, Europe, US and Chile. It also organizes annually in New York, London and Athens a series of Investment Forums focusing on its main activity fields (www.capitallinkforum.com).
Capital Link has a leading position globally in the area of Investor Relations with respect to shipping, as it cooperates with 25 shipping companies listed on the three US Stock Exchanges, as well as in London (LSE and AIM) and Milan. Capital Link is by far the most recognizable IR firm in this sector with unique access to investors, analysts, media and bankers. It has built the most extensive and effective platform for linking Listed shipping Companies with the investment community in Europe and the United States. Capital Link is a member of the Baltic Exchange and organizes regularly Analyst and CEO Forums on tankers, containers and dry bulk shipping. Additionally, it holds annually the "Invest in International Shipping" Capital Link Forums in New York and London. Finally, it also maintains a shipping portal with information on all UK and US Listed shipping Companies (www.capitallinkshipping.com).
Capital Link has also a leading position in US Closed-End funds and ETFs, as it cooperates with the major fund sponsors in these sectors. The Annual Capital Link "Closed-End Fund and Global ETF" Forum taking place in New York, already in its 9th year, is considered the most significant Forum of the sector. In the context of this Forum, Capital Link organizes the "Annual Closed-End Fund & Global ETF Awards" which recognize funds and managers who adhere to high standards of Corporate Governance, financial disclosure and Investor Relations. Capital Link also maintains a portal with information on these funds (www.closedendfundforum.com).
Capital Link has built one of the most extensive and effective networks for the promotion of Greek Listed Companies both in Greece and mainly in Europe and the United States targeting international investors. Indicative events of its activity are the decisive contribution of Capital Link to the signing of the Cooperation Memorandum between the New York and Athens Stock Exchanges in 2002, the organization of events for the OTE listing on the New York Stock Exchange in 1998, as well as the organization of the first visit by the Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange to Athens in 2001. The Annual Capital Link Forum on "Investing in Greece", already in its 12th year, has been established as the most credible Forum for briefing US investors on the progress, developments and potential of the Greek economy, the stock market and Greek listed companies. Capital Link's Greek portal (www.capitallinkgreece.com), in operation since 1997, has been established as a main source of information among international investors on the Greek stock market and Listed Companies.
Finally, Capital Link organizes the Greek IR Awards, aimed to identify and recognize those Executives and Companies who adhere to high standards of Corporate Governance, financial disclosure and Investor Relations (www.irawards.gr).
