Engaging shareholders is the secret sauce to successful capital raising. If your company is striving to optimise its capital raising efforts, this key relationship-building strategy should be at the top of your list. Not only can it lead to more substantial funding outcomes, but it also helps forge a sturdy shareholder roster, even amidst market unpredictability.

Let's dive into some beneficial habits that can boost your shareholder engagement game.

Let's Talk Relationships

Yes, the markets have historically been booming for a while, making fundraising seem like a walk in the park. But this boom has also unintentionally moved shareholder relationships to the back burner. As economic winds shift and funding becomes more of a challenge, these relationships are coming back into focus. They're vital to secure funding and maintain a healthy shareholder register all year round.

So, how do you nurture these relationships?

Give investors plenty of chances to touch base with you, either online or in person. Regular updates about the company's performance and addressing their concerns can go a long way. Don't fall into the trap of thinking investors only care about the financials. They're interested in the big picture.

Leveraging Technology

Digital tools are no longer optional; they're a necessity in our tech-dominated age. Most, if not all, investors are digitally savvy, using online resources to stay informed about their investments. You need to meet them where they are.

Digital tools like virtual meetings, webinars, webcasts, and online communities can significantly enhance your shareholder engagement.

Don't stick to a one-size-fits-all communication approach; a bit of flexibility can significantly enhance your investors' experience.

Introducing Active Listening

Investors want their voices heard and their concerns genuinely addressed. A rising trend of activist investing shows investors aren't shy about taking matters into their own hands. So, set up a feedback mechanism to let shareholders speak up and ask questions.

This not only helps deepen your relationship with investors but also allows you to better cater to their needs.

Encourage Shareholder Collaboration

Collaborating with shareholders can offer valuable insights into your company's performance and highlight areas for improvement.

Consider hosting focus groups or roundtable discussions to understand their viewpoints better. While it may seem time-consuming, digital tools have made this aspect of shareholder engagement much more manageable.
