Marketing and investor relations teams need to categorise contacts into an investor intelligence centre; use targeted segmentation to prioritise schedules for making contact; keep abreast of allocator news, changing staff and strategy preferences, and use all of this and historical allocation patterns to inform outreach, while also maintaining controls on the security of confidential data and documents. They may need to do all of this ‘24/7’, anywhere on the planet.
