InvestorCom is founded on the belief that no two companies’ shareholder compositions are alike. Therefore, each company requires the services of a firm that can penetrate the veil of “street name” beneficial ownership and apply this intelligence through services to increase shareholder value.

InvestorCom prides itself on its knowledge of its clients’ industries and its commitment to the ongoing education of its clients. InvestorCom represents a universe of quality clients from many industries, including Technology, Healthcare, Financial Services, Public Utilities, and Communications.

At InvestorCom, clients benefit from our experience, depth of understanding, strategic approach, and consistent high-level interpretative analysis, not just data distribution. This difference is what we call Shareholder Intelligence.
