Resource Solutions – London Stock Exchange
The Issuer Services team sits within the Capital Markets team of the London Stock Exchange. The team’s mandate is to build and maintain relationships with issuers and be a revenue generating centre through the Issuer Services platform and other services.
Our core clients are the Investor Relations teams and the c-suite within our Issuers and Pre-IPO companies. We aim to offer them a range of products and services through the platform, that is split across five broad areas:
3,4,5 above are directly revenue generating. 1 and 2 provide insights and tools to the issuers that are valuable and drive adoption of the platform. Should the Refinitiv transaction successfully close, we anticipate that there will be an opportunity to share more value added data with our issuers through the platform.
Through SparkLive we give our issuers and Pre-IPO companies the opportunity to livestream and host on demand their corporate presentations including capital markets days, results presentations, AGMs and roadshows in the public domain and also through a private link. We distribute the livestreams through SparkLive and also through to capitalise on our distribution capabilities. We also anticipate that there will be the opportunity to leverage Refinitiv distribution through Workspace and other platforms.
We currently offer functionality through the platform such as Q&A, speaker bios, description, save the date, request a one-on-one meeting etc. We rely on third party technology providers to provide the livestreaming embed. Our USP is our trusted brand, our distribution capabilities and our functionality. We launched SparkLive in 2020 and we have seen some good initial traction with clients. We believe that there is significant scope for growth.
We are recruiting for an individual to be a Senior Associate to assist with the ongoing development and commercialisation of the SparkLive product and assist in taking it to the next level of maturity. The candidate will report to the SparkLive Product Manager. The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively and effectively in the team and with the product manager as we develop SparkLive.
The candidate will be expected to take responsibility for the following:
In relation to the relationship management of issuers, the candidate would be expected to proactively engage with issuers every day to ensure we are developing the platform in line with their needs and feedback. It is also important that the candidate is able to monitor the issuers use of the platform and spot cross selling opportunities as they arise.
