Reach & other media services

Investors expect corporate communications to go beyond mere regulatory requirements. Shareholders, analysts and institutional investors want to receive company news via the desktop tools and financial media that they use every day. Increasingly, this is what regulatory authorities in the UK, Europe and the US are recommending to ensure broad and fair disclosure throughout the international capital markets.

RNS has the tools that enable you to adapt your regulatory announcements into best practice communications to shareholders and potential investors – wherever they are:

  • Simultaneously target institutional investors and analysts in the UK, Europe and the US
  • Tailor communications to the needs and communication channels of each financial market
  • Use the information news services for direct distribution to desktops of institutional investors
  • Disclose company news to trade publications, online databases, research tools and the Internet.

In addition to the many regulatory disclosure services available, RNS also offers customers these media distribution services as standard, with other more bespoke distribution channels possible on request:

  • Reach
  • UK Financial Media
  • European Financial Media
  • Nordic Newswires
  • Canadian Media
  • US Financial Wire
  • Japanese Wires

Request registration

Registering to use RNS services is a very straightforward process.  It is free to register and does not commit you to use RNS over any specific period of time.  RNS’s flexible “pay-as-you go” model means that fees are incurred only when you make announcements via one of the many RNS regulatory and media distribution channels.
