Diligent teams with Q4 to offer enhanced IR and board governance tools

Governance, risk and compliance SaaS solution Diligent has partnered with capital markets communications platform Q4 to provide pre-IPO and public companies with IR and board governance solutions.

Through the partnership, listing companies will benefit from Diligent’s Board & Leadership Collaboration and Q4’s investor relations platform. This will give them the capacity to quickly implement market-leading solutions to fuel good governance and manage investor relations pre-IPO and beyond, it said.

The Board & Leadership Collaboration solution empowers and informs governance best practices for publicly traded companies across the fiscal year. It covers everything from routine filings to preparing for an annual general meeting.

Q4’s investor relations platform integrates the necessary tools for an IR program, including CRM, AI targeting, capital market intelligence and advanced analytics.

Diligent senior vice president of worldwide partnerships Ricardo Moreno said, “In this era of stakeholder capitalism, pre-IPO and publicly listed companies face more scrutiny than ever before. It’s important for leaders to have the tools to successfully navigate complex challenges to come out ahead.

“As a leader in capital markets communications, Q4 was a natural partner for us to further help leaders align their company practices with investor expectations.”

Speaking on the partnership, Q4 CEO Darrell Heaps said, “Given the public company mandate for effective governance in today’s environment, we are excited to broaden our marketplace of IR excellence with the inclusion of Diligent’s modern governance solutions.”

Diligent offers SaaS solutions that cover governance, risk, compliance and ESG. These solutions are used by over one million users from more than 25,000 customers around the world.

It recently released a report on how automating internal controls testing can enable a business to achieve their goals.
