DeMarche Speakers Bureau
The DeMarche Speakers Bureau was established to make available our industry experts to speak on a variety of cutting edge topics relevant to institutional investors, and financial executives.
In its over 40 year history, DeMarche has spoken at numerous conferences and workshops sponsored by the National Investor Relations Institute, the CFA Institute (formerly AIMR), Financial Executives International (FEI), National Association of Corporate Treasurers, Treasury Management Association / AFP, and the Human Resource Management Association (HRMA).
Bridging the gap between academia and practical application, DeMarche’s own Programs in Finance workshops align with the goal of professional programs, to provide educational topics that combine theory and practical instruction to help you meet today’s market challenges.
A leader in finance and investment consulting since 1974, DeMarche Associates has developed research and worked with academics to keep senior finance executives up-to-date on developments in finance and investments.

Sample Speaker Topics
Based upon more than 30 years of research into returns attribution, DeMarche uses proprietary analytical tools that can help identify key drivers of stock price and unique company characteristics that have the greatest impact on stock performance. You then can use these insights to develop your company’s message to investors, position your company against your peers, target the most appropriate investors and provide management with objective market feedback on enhancing shareholder value.
DeMarche uses a sophisticated multi-factor approach to identify how different factors affect different stocks in different parts of a market cycle. This approach is based on the premise that stocks are incorrectly priced from time to time. In this presentation, you’ll hear DeMarche experts discuss the factors that you should be watching now, and those you should monitor in the future. We will demonstrate that building a unique blend of factors, individually fitted to your stock, can provide a better basis for measuring and communicating your company’s performance.
