Anne Guimard, President
There are tens of thousands of corporations that claim their goal is to create shareholder value by delivering sustainable, profitable growth. Many CEO’s believe their enterprises are undervalued, their strategies often misunderstood, and their investor relations presence falling short of the mark. In a perfect world, all corporations would enjoy the trust and support of long-term shareholders in this ambition.
Yet the reality can be somewhat different. And while they may entertain a legitimate hope to gain a fair share of the global capital pie, competition is fierce.
Whether the starting point is an IPO, a reputation-threatening crisis, a profit warning or simply guiding a company through the complex and dynamic life as a listed company, at FINEO we make sure our clients get a top seat at the investors’ table.
With a hands-on approach to advising a diverse spectrum of clients, Anne is able to work with private and public company Boards and C-suites alike and steer them towards their valuation objectives. Her expertise lies in her ability to achieve outcomes that can be measured, shareholder engagement strategies that deliver, and investment stories that sell.
Anne’s holistic focus for Investor Relations extends beyond clients’ financial statements and regulatory disclosures to include corporate governance, risk management, compliance, environmental and social issues, all of which are becoming increasingly prominent on investors’ agendas.
As a passionate advocate of the IR profession, Anne serves a number of appointments beyond FINEO:
- Director of the Board of the National Investor Relations Institute (2012- 2016)
- Member of the Investor Relations Society in France, United Kingdom and South Africa
- Member of the French Institute of Directors
- Member of The Professional Women’s Network
- Member of TheBoardroom Africa
