Quartr presents its first edition of IR Awards
Finance software startup Quartr launches an initiative to honor Investor Relations professionals who are doing exceptional work by presenting IR Awards. As a company building products for the financial community, processing millions of documents from public companies every year, Quartr has a rare viewpoint.
“We spend literally hundreds of hours studying Investor Relations material in our day-to-day operations, and therefore believe we have a very unique perspective. Consequently, we are introducing Quartr IR Awards, with the purpose of honoring IR departments who dare to think outside the box. This year’s Awards are split into six different categories, but all are judged on the same principles; innovation, clarity, transparency, and overall quality”.
Says David Dag, Head of Corporate Relationships at Quartr.
