MZ, a member of Grupo Attitude, the world’s largest independent investor relations company and a benchmark for innovation in the financial communications market, is pleased to announce the launch of Portal NEO1, a robust website that will generate and compile content related to financial communications, the financial market, the capital market, sustainability, the law, investor relations and corporate governance.
The aim is to unite information on the financial market in a single channel, with news straight from the IR departments of listed companies, events calendars and results disclosure, with links to conference calls, as well as articles and studies by renowned financial sector professionals, and much more.
According to Paulo Barroso, an MZ partner and head of the company’s marketing area,"MZ is following its innovation DNA by launching a pioneering portal for the creation of a knowledge bank, giving financial market professionals easy access to a wealth of information in a single location."
Portal NEO1 (portalneo1.net) also arose to take advantage of the changes introduced by CVM Instruction 547/14, which enters into effect today and allows listed companies to publish their material acts and facts on internet news portals and not only in large circulation newspapers, as previously.
MZ believes these changes will facilitate and streamline the dissemination of material acts and facts, as well as helping to reduce listed companies’ maintenance costs, thereby increasing the attractiveness of the capital market as an alternative financing source.
According to Rodrigo Alves, CEO of MZ,"in addition to being a portal with fully up-to-date information on the financial market, the channel has a specific section for online legal publicity where all MZ’s clients can publish their material facts free of charge and keep up with the latest market tendencies.".
