The Anne McBride Company, founded six years ago by the former president of Ludgate’s U.S. operations, distinguishes itself from a host of competing investor relations boutiques through its approach to IR and its emphasis on international capital markets. It provides media and analyst relations, annual report and website production and other traditional IR services to more than 40 clients, with an emphasis on companies from overseas markets, including a heavy concentration from both Israel and Latin America.
The McBride Company takes an analytical approach to developing client communications, studying the political and economic environment in which the company operates and offering counsel that reflects an objective reading of the client’s business rather than what the client wants to hear. Clients are mostly small and mid-cap companies seeking greater coverage. Industry expertise ranges from extensive high tech and software to healthcare, gas, consumer products and retail markets.
But what sets McBride apart are its international partnerships. The firm works with affiliated agencies in the U.K., Israel, India, Poland, Mexico, Brazil and Greece.
