Investor engagement has evolved.

“It’s difficult to reach and engage retail” is a common pain for most listed companies, but it’s not entirely accurate. Investors and listed companies want to engage with each other, but it can be difficult or inefficient to do so. 

With an approach we call direct-to-investor marketing, listed companies are bridging the gap between their shareholders and the broader investor community. Here’s how Altech leverages investor marketing to effectively engage retail, grow investor demand, and raise sticky capital.
"Our company philosophy is pretty simple. We think we've got good projects. We think we've got good people driving these projects within our management team. And we think our shareholders are equally as important as our projects and our management team."

As the face of Altech for investors and shareholders, Iggy and Martin are front and centre as essential elements of the company's goal towards building investor relationships at scale.

Activating investor demand with a capital raise.

The direct-to-investor marketing approach contextualises shareholder engagement as the start of growing investor demand, and a capital raise as a common way of activating that investor demand.

In August 2023, Altech executed a capital raise comprising a $3m placement and a $12.8m non-renounceable entitlement offer (NREO), the shareholder offer component ensuring that existing shareholders were included and treated fairly.

Altech communicated frequently with the market during this time with a key strategy to identify and target HNWs (high-net-worth investors) via InvestorHub's integrated registry analytics to successfully fill out the shortfall.
“With the InvestorHub platform and the dedicated raise support, we were able to easily mop up the shortfall. We identified the HNWs and other shareholders who were interested in future raises and reached out to them first to take up the additional shortfall allocation. That action through the product enabled us to close out the raise on a strong note, and at this point, the product pays for itself”.
