About

The #1 cloud-based IR and capital markets solutions provider.

Our Story

Founded in 2006 with the goal of improving the effectiveness of investor relations through innovative, forward-thinking website solutions, the Q4 team designed an alternative approach to IR websites that put storytelling first and emphasized intuitive corporate reporting. By building a better, more dynamic platform, companies were now able to deploy what we call “websites without compromise”.

As our client base expanded, so too has our product offering. Over the years, we’ve carefully curated a suite of IR products geared to improve the lives of our clients and empower them to be leaders in IR. In 2015, acquired Oxford Intelligence Partners, a company that specialized in capital markets intelligence and customized analytics to IR professionals. With the addition of capital market intelligence as a core offering, Q4 now provides our clients both dynamic outbound channels to the marketplace and a unique inbound channel that delivers critical capital markets intelligence and customized analytics.

With the vision to become the dominant global capital markets platform that connects companies and investors, Q4 introduced Q4 Desktop to the market in 2016. As a result, our clients enjoy the industry’s first, fully­ integrated investor relations platform, which integrates communications tools, surveillance and analytics into a fully featured IR workflow and CRM application.

Q4 has been helping hundreds of global companies communicate their stories and strengthen their brand within the investment industry for over a decade. We’re proud of where we came from, and where we're going — and we will continue to push the limits and innovate the investor relations marketplace.
