The investor relations section of your company website serves two main objectives; for new investors, it is an introduction and pathway to investing and a useful accessory for those who already know the company.
There are six components of the website that all investors will require:

Investor Presentation: an updated presentation containing overview of the business, the sector and the latest developments.

Easy access to numbers: quick and easy access the latest financial statements.
