SICR (Shared Investor
Communications and Relationships) is an independent professional service to
develop working relationships among top executives who may need
assistance now or within a few years :
- because of the scope of their authority and the general
environment of growth and changes within their company or in the places where
they do business, even if no specific project is foreseen now, or
- because specific projects are already foreseen,
whether as active plans in progress, or as contingency
plans being prepared for potential developments.
In some cases, a company may be looking to develop an alliance or
acquisition in a market of strategic interest, but may eventually decide to
take a direct investment approach.
The relationship leader works with
executives to anticipate, identify, and meet their needs through
sufficiently frequent contact and understanding of the business to recognize
and respond to opportunities to add value.
GUIDE (Globally Uniform
Investment Data and Experience) is a service to develop and openly share
well-structured, consistent, and more reliable knowledge about two
dimensions of global direct investment decisions:
- objective, factual DATA and local market knowledge about
factors of common interest to corporate decision-makers
- independent professional research into the actual EXPERIENCE
other major investors who faced similar issues, such as well-established
companies or recent investors in the areas of potential interest.
It consists of several products, organizing different levels of detail
according to the typical progression of investment decisions from a
high-level analysis of a "long list" of many alternatives down to more
thorough analysis of a "short list" of preferred alternatives.
Some of the
knowledge is provided by participating area representatives and service
providers in compliance with GUIDE standards, but some of it is
