Investor Insight, powered by Cannings Purple, is a multi-channel investor relations platform providing investors and media access to and insight into some of Australia’s most exciting listed and non-listed companies – across the mining, critical minerals, energy, technology and agribusiness sectors.

Our team of communications professionals, including several award-winning business journalists, has established an industry leading reputation for delivering strategic content that cuts through the white noise and reaches its target investor and media audience.

For us, it is not about investor relations or media relations – we focus on providing high-quality, strategic communications that can deliver the best relations to investors and media – large and small, mainstream and trade, institutional and retail, print and digital.

With unrivalled knowledge of, and access to, local and national media, broker firms and corporate advisors, high net worth investors, fund managers and family offices as well as retail investors across Australia, we partner with companies to help them find their voice in today’s highly competitive capital marketplace.

Deliberately strategic, clearly focused and on point with the corporate narrative, we put your message in front of the people that should be interested in your business.
