LONDON -- January 20, 2014
ingage, a new investor relations company, launched today promising to put
control of corporate access back into the hands of investors and corporates.
Founded by Michael Hufton, a former stockpicker and fund manager with over
eighteen years experience, ingage has been created in response to the pressing
need for clarity and transparency in the engagement between investors and
listed companies. Established with FCA input, Michael is backed by a team of
expert investment and software industry professionals.
“ingage will revolutionise corporate access by facilitating a fair and
efficient exchange of information between investors and the companies they
want to meet. The ingage online marketplace removes all barriers to access and
offers a low cost system where investors can request meetings with companies
directly. Companies control meeting allocation and can thoroughly research the
investors, making sure they see those who are most relevant to their business
and not the ones that pay the most.
“Paying for corporate access using client commissions is a practice that the
FCA is determined to eradicate; our low cost platform brings efficiency and
transparency to the corporate access market and provides new tools to
investors, company management and investor relations officers. This makes a
clean break from the opaque practices of the past.” said Michael Hufton,
Managing Director of ingage.
ingage employs a user based subscription model giving equal representation to
subscribers. By using the ingage cloud-hosted IT platform, investors manage
the complete universe of company roadshows, one on one meeting requests,
profile information and feedback, all in one place. Every investor sees the
company meetings available and companies select the investors they most want
to meet. The ability to host webcasts directly on the platform allows
companies to reach an even wider audience.
ingage is currently in the testing phase with launch clients Fidelity on the
institutional side, and National Grid and Tullow Oil on the corporate side.

ingage is happy to demonstrate its platform to interested journalists.
