Edison Group establishes Edison Israel

RELATED TOPICS​

Edison Group (Edison), an investment research, investor relations and consulting firm, has established Edison Israel, a joint venture (JV) with GK Investor Relations, a market leading IR consultancy based in Tel Aviv.

The joint venture will significantly increase Edison’s presence in Israel and will enhance its IR services to local Israeli companies looking to access international capital. It also increases our presence in Israel supporting international companies looking to engage with the rapidly growing local investment market. In addition, private and early stage, fast growth companies will be able to benefit from the firm’s investor networks and deep sector expertise.

Edison Israel brings together the significant experience of Ehud Helft, Kenny Green and Gavriel Frohwein from GK, with that of Will Manuel, who has led Edison’s Israeli business for 6 years. Their combined knowledge of local and international investment markets and the expanded pool of investor funds that the wider Edison Group brings, will significantly increase the opportunity for Israeli companies to secure international investor following and growth funding. In addition, it enables global businesses to tap into the growing institutional investor base in Israel, which exceeds over $1 trillion and is growing by $3 billion monthly, according to the Bank of Israel.

Fraser Thorne, CEO of Edison, says: “We are delighted to be working so closely with one of the most experienced IR teams in Israeli capital markets. Ehud, Kenny and Gavriel have a long and successful track record of advising companies on their IR strategies, helping them evolve their shareholders base and securing funding to support their growth strategies. Edison is traditionally known for providing independent research for Israeli companies through its work with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and I am really pleased that our offering to Israel-based clients has significantly broadened and we look forward to working with the expanded client base over the coming months and years.”

Ehud Helft, Director of Edison Israel, says: “Together with Edison, we can provide a broad suite of services with global reach, including research and advisory services to both public and early-stage Israeli companies. The JV it significantly expands the reach of Israeli-based companies to over 50 thousand investors globally, while on the other hand, it adds Israel to the global institutional investor map for international companies embarking on European non-deal roadshows.”
 
Kenny Green, Director of Edison Israel, says: “We are very pleased to become a part of the Edison Group, leveraging its global research and advisory platform to bring Israeli clients a truly differentiated and value-adding offering. It will allow us to better bridge the global investor community with the world’s most interesting, innovative and creative companies many of which are based here in Israel.”
