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. DeMarche has been a leader in applying the concept of benchmarking to indexes, investor relations, peer groups and corporate finance. DeMarche also has led the way on aspects of behavioral finance and in sponsoring academics with fresh perspectives and improved techniques for calculating cost of equity capital.

Because of its early interest in understanding the factors that drive the stock market, DeMarche has become a leading research firm. DeMarche professionals focus on current topics that are critical to investment, corporate finance and investor relations practitioners. Over that past 30 years, DeMarche has sponsored more than 200 workshops, providing clients and prospects the opportunity interact with leaders in the industry and access leading research through and practical applications of it.
