The agency was founded as a limited company in 2000, is under owner management and has offices in Cologne and Frankfurt am Main. Our consultants apply their cross-sector experience gathered from over 400 communication projects, more than 300 annual and quarterly reports and more than 100 capital market transactions.
Based on this expertise we implement communications with the reliability and the efficiency that enables success in capital markets.
We support our clients not only in ongoing investor relations and communication activities but also in projects such as capital market and M&A transactions as well as special situations such as corporate crises and restructuring.
In addition, as part of our Sustainability & ESG business unit, we advise our clients on current regulatory requirements, support them in developing sustainability strategies and integrating these in corporations, and set up sustainability & ESG reports.
The lean organization of IR.on AG enables a practical consulting approach. We are "hands-on". For our customers that means: the consultant who designs a concept or develops a strategy with his team, is also responsible for the implementation of these measures. We provide a fast, reliable and efficient service geared to high client satisfaction. Our current client relationships date back seven years on average
In its many years of consulting activity the IR.on team has actively managed communication projects in various capital market stages. Our team combines experience in the daily operations of IR departments as well as agency-wide expertise. We offer our customers professional support for all strategic and operational issues in the field of investor relations and financial communication.
The IR.on AG is independent. At IR.on there are no conflicts from cross-shareholdings with one of the large communication networks, nor do we have any obligations to other participants in the capital market. This independence secures our customers neutral advice and the implementation of measures that are serving the solution of the task in an uncompromising manner.
We consider mutual openness a prerequisite for successful cooperation with our customers. The resulting obligation and responsibility is something we take extremely seriously. As a long-standing member of the financial community we reject any actions which could be detrimental to these maxims.
Our sustainability strategy consists of four fields of action that form the basis of our daily business.
With the help of concrete goals, we pursue the sustainable development of our agency.
