Benefit from unrivalled engagement with your investors

  • We canvassed the opinions of 17,000 investors to find out:
    • how and when they use our platforms
    • how they want to receive and view Roadshow and Research material in future
  • The first platform built for investors by investors.

Too often technology is developed in isolation of the end user. In order to create a new standard, we wanted to deliver a platform driven by what investors want and need.

In 2019, we canvassed the views of 17,000 investors who’d had access to our platforms, to find out what was important to them and what they wanted. From how they use our platforms to how they want to interact with Roadshow and Research materials in future, we listened. The result? Our next generation Plus+ iRoadshow and IPO Research Online platforms have been redesigned to be the first platform built for investors by investors.

Presentation mode

Presentation mode allows the promoter to turn investors' slides during a conference call, improving delivery of the value proposition.

The B&C difference

Our unerring commitment to delivering an unrivalled experience, 24/7 availability, continuous improvement and world class service all add up to the Black&Callow difference.

How secure is iRoadshow?

accordion sign

iRoadshow provides the best security available for your data. The platform used for iRoadshow uses strong encryption when data is transmitted and stored, and in addition our server systems are secured and regularly audited, and all processes are backed by a comprehensive security policy.

Where are iRoadshow’s servers?

accordion sign

Black & Callow applications are hosted in the cloud using Microsoft Azure cloud hosting solutions. Our web application servers and Azure SQL databases are located in the UK, with built-in regional high availability and turnkey geo-replication to any Azure region. Microsoft Azure guarantees that applications are available 99.95% of the time, and Azure SQL databases will have a minimum uptime of 99.95%.

What security and data encryption does iRoadshow use ?

accordion sign

iRoadshow handles all documents, internal messages, entity names and properties, names and details of financial accounts and transaction details (collectively “data”) as follows:

Data Encryption

The security of the information in a client’s customer portal is paramount to us, which is why we use encryption at rest with SQL Azure. This provides data protection by encrypting data when it is stored on the disk, preventing malicious access to system data if the physical database files were ever compromised. The data is encrypted with a secret AES256 encryption key which is stored securely in Azure Key Vault, without which access to is denied. We work hard to ensure data is held on mission-critical systems which conform to multiple security standards.

We regularly review available encryption technology and the emergence of any potential weakness in the techniques employed by iRoadshow to ensure that iRoadshow is secure.

HTTPS Protocol

HTTPS stands for hypertext transfer protocol secure and is the encrypted version of HTTP. It is used for secure communication across the internet or a network. The communication protocol is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) or, formerly, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Black & Callow systems are implemented using this industry standard HTTPS protocol, which uses a secure SSL certificate from a third-party vendor to secure a connection and verify that the site is legitimate. This certificate creates a secure encrypted connection between the browser you use and the server hosting the Black & Callow applications.

Penetration Testing

Cyber security has never been more important that it is today, and Black & Callow applications have been implementing using best coding practices and regular penetration testing. These tests are designed to help prevent malicious attacks to the system and are essential in removing security vulnerabilities.

Data Storage

accordion sign

iRoadshow is built on advanced VDR technology and is a fully managed services hosted in the cloud using Microsoft Azure cloud hosting solutions.

Our web application servers and Azure SQL databases are located in the UK at datacentres with both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 accreditations.

Data is uploaded/created and stored in individual projects. This information is ‘siloed’ and only available to the client who provided the data. It is neither visible nor available to any other parties.

Global Data Protection Compliance

accordion sign

With servers based in the UK, iRoadshow ensures compliance with EU and global Data Protection legislation and ensures the service has no exposure to US data collection provisions.

Black & Callow applications are developed with GDPR compliance in mind. We are able to extract user information on request, as well as remove user data from our systems if needed.
