What We Do
CG Capital’s extensive network of investor relationships within the institutional and non-institutional investment community is one of the firm’s most powerful assets. Our ability to identify and match the best investors with the right clients is where we add the most value.

Being descriptive about your company is different from being convincing to investors. Describing your company is easy; convincing investors is difficult. At CG Capital, we build an investment thesis that mitigates the perceived valuation risks, while outlining the potential catalysts of your company’s stock.
We Provide value with the following activities:
Developing an investment thesis and key messages that are consistent with corporate strategy.
Preparing conference call scripts and preparation tools for management complete with anticipated questions and suggested answers.
Drafting and editing of financial releases and other investor-related communications.
When it comes to dealing with pressing corporate or investor relations matters, such as communicating an earnings shortfall, coping with new SEC rules, or anticipating how the investment community will react to a potential M&A transaction, we have the knowledge and expertise necessary to provide insightful counsel. The principals of CG Capital regularly engage with key members of the investment community to gauge changes in investor sentiment and to understand the investment community’s reactions to various company strategic initiatives.
Other consultative benefits include:
Senior-level insight into dealing with corporate investor relations issues.
Feedback from meetings and follow-up interviews to continuously update campaign messaging.
Counsel on regulatory matters (i.e. Reg FD, Sarbanes-Oxley).
Your management team has a business to run. Most of our clients do not have the time and resources to be proactive and manage the critical, day-to-day interactions that most investors demand. Our proactive investor relations program serves as a buffer between management and their overly frequent interactions with the financial community.
We provide a timely response to the investment community on behalf of your management team, which goes a long way toward keeping investors satisfied with the attention they rightly deserve. We then follow up with immediate feedback to your management team.
The primary objective of our Capital Markets Development (CMD) initiative is to seed relevant investor interest. To ensure its efficiency and success, we monitor investor activity and money flows within our clients’ respective business sectors to identify new investors that will be the most likely to invest in your company. Our CMD initiatives provide the most effective measure in delivering results. Included in our CMD campaigns are:
Dedicated CMD Associates
