The Q4 business model is based on helping companies create successful IR programs, better connect with their investors, make more effective decisions, and understand the capital markets. Q4 executive team members and our Surveillance Analysts have presented at a number of conferences and events throughout North America and regularly author whitepapers and research on IR best practice.
