Investment advisors make up a huge segment of the U.S. investor base; according to a recent survey carried out by RIA Channel, there were 14,955 independent registered investment advisors in the United States with cumulative assets under management of $2.969 trillion (https://ibn.fm/gkVER). Meanwhile, retail investors have increasingly become a dominant force within the U.S. equity market; a study carried out by Morgan Stanley revealed that retail investors accounted for close to 10 percent of daily trading volume on the Russell 3000, the broadest U.S. stocks index, after peaking at 15% in September 2020 as widespread lockdowns and increased savings triggered interest in the markets (https://ibn.fm/ecxI4). SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX), a financial technology company that unlocks data and insights for publicly traded companies through Sequire, its SaaS platform, has sought to bridge the gap between listed corporations and the two investor sub-sets through the introduction of a number of novel features on its platform.
As of May 2021, SRAX revealed that its Sequire platform had seen its corporate subscriber base swell to 183 publicly listed companies in addition to boasting a network of over five million influential, forward-thinking investors and shareholders. Sequire has recently released new features to help facilitate communication between its listed corporate subscribers and retail investor base, consisting of an automated email feature as well as an SMS function.
Sequire’s listed corporate base will have access to custom filters to assist them in structuring campaigns directed at specific investor categories (https://ibn.fm/mmDe2), along with automation triggers, machine learning and other enhancements designed to promote frictionless communication between corporations and the millions of retail investors on their platform.
“These new tools will allow companies to better manage communication with their shareholder base by defining pre-established triggers that will execute both email and SMS messages,” said SRAX Founder and CEO Christopher Miglino (https://ibn.fm/u0ITG).
SRAX has simultaneously released new search features, enabling companies to access contact information on registered investment advisors. Banking on the knowledge that close corporate interactions with investment advisors make it more likely that a given investment advisor will recommend a company’s stock to clients, the investment advisor feature on Sequire will seek to assist issuers in developing significant connections and ties with the investment advisor community (https://ibn.fm/0deuy).
SRAX’s corporate subscribers will be able to search and filter for specific types of advisors, designed to assist them in efficiently contacting their target audience. Moreover, in addition to assisting issuers in communicating with the advisors, the platform will also enable companies to track their subsequent participation in their listed equity.
“Registered Investment Advisors have been the largest investors in our company SRAX and have been a significant part of the growth of our shareholder base. We are now providing the tools that will enable issuers to identify, communicate with and track the progress of specific advisors,” stated Christopher Miglino.
