EQS Group’s products are bundled in the cloud-based software EQS COCKPIT. This allows compliance processes in the areas of whistleblower protection and case handling, policy management and approval processes to be managed just as professionally as business partners, insider lists and reporting obligations.
Listed companies also benefit from a global newswire, investor targeting and contact management, as well as IR websites, digital reports and webcasts for efficient and secure investor communication.
In addition, EQS Group develops software for the management of ESG (environment, social, governance) data, the fulfilment of human rights due diligence obligations along corporate supply chains and for rule-compliant sustainability reporting. EQS Group was founded in Munich in 2000. Today, the group employs around 600 professionals and is represented in the world’s most important financial centres.
Our business is based on three megatrends:
Our Mission: Creating trusted companies
Taking advantage of digital
Digitisation of manual processes continues to evolve. Our customers all over the world are looking for efficient, integrated communication solutions that cover all their publication, disclosure, and documentation requirements, while also enabling active communication with global investors and other stakeholders.
When we started in 2000, the internet was in its early stages. Even then, we realised that working digitally and using a secure cloud environment was the future. That’s why our workflow software, EQS IR COCKPIT, has been cloud-based from day one.
Now, we’re taking another step forward. After two years of development, we launched the EQS IR COCKPIT, a cutting-edge cloud-based platform that addresses publication, disclosure, and documentation requirements through integrated workflows.
We’re at home in regulated markets
A sharp increase in regulation has resulted in stricter guidelines for capital markets and companies. As a stock-listed company, we understand the needs and target audiences of our clients. By working actively with professional associations in the most important financial markets, and through close cooperation with domestic and international financial institutions, we are always up to speed with the newest trends and developments.
The EQS COCKPIT enables the fulfilment of regulatory requirements within one platform, making the process of disclosure as simple as possible. Thanks to EQS COCKPIT’s intuitive workflow design, reminders, and various intelligence tools, clients can comfortably deal with regulations and rely on over to 20 years of industry expertise.
Present in the most important capital markets
To fully understand and serve our client’s needs and to remain abreast of varying local requirements, we have around 550 team members around the world, allowing us to be available for our clients and present in the biggest capital markets. We are the undisputed market leader for digital investor relations in the German-speaking market (DACH). Today, all DAX40 companies use the EQS COCKPIT.
To serve the European market, we have subsidiaries in London, Paris, and Zurich, as well as sales representatives in Italy, Spain, the Benelux Union, and Scandinavia. Our global investor and media network is supported by our key pillars in New York City and Hong Kong.
Our international and multicultural teams work closely together to make sure that we best serve our clients with our global know-how and best-in-class technology, which is developed in our two technology centers located in Munich, Germany and Kochi, India. We believe in acting locally while thinking globally.
EQS Group is convinced that value orientation should be a central component of business and society. With our software, we want to support companies and organisations in upholding and complying with ethical standards and laws. We cooperate with experts, are involved in numerous networks and, as an active member in various associations, we also deepen our knowledge on the topics of whistleblower protection, compliance, business ethics as well as data protection and remain in constant exchange. Among other things, we support NGOs through selected memberships, sponsorships and honorary positions – nationally and internationally.
