Q4 Web Systems, the fast growing provider of online investor relations solutions for public companies, today announced a strategic partnership related to their Big Data initiative with Finmaven, a leading provider of social intelligence data for finance professionals.
The partnership is part of Q4's ongoing efforts to expand the information and insight they are providing to IR professionals to help manage their investor relations and communication efforts in today's rapidly changing world. The partnership combines the financial social media data and analysis from Finmaven with the capital market and investor relations platform of Q4.
"The financial social web has redefined how news moves markets. In today's world, Twitter and financial blogs have a huge impact on how and when news breaks" said Darrell Heaps, Q4's CEO. "Finmaven is one of a select group of companies providing social intelligence to the buy-side and hedge funds. By partnering with Finmaven, we are able to provide the same intelligence investors are using to trade to IR professionals."
Finmaven was recently cited by the Wall Street Journal as one of a select group of companies that are particularly strong at social media monitoring for financial professionals. A key benefit of Finmaven is the firm's focus on cancelling out the noise of social media by focusing on blog posts and tweets that can move stock prices immediately
"Social media is increasingly becoming an important channel for investors to research and stay informed about company developments, and to discover new investment opportunities. Q4 is the leader in helping IR adopt and make effective use of social media" said Dmitriy Mitchev, Finmaven's founder and CEO, "and we are excited to be working with them on bringing social media intelligence to investor relations. As we continue to build out our own market-leading capabilities we look forward to creating new and innovative products alongside Darrell and the team at Q4."
The companies have entered into a multi-year engagement, with the first product born from this partnership to be launching soon. Keep tuned to Q4 on social media for more information.
