I'm going to confess my ignorance and say I've never heard of a physical investor kit. I guess this is the leave-behinds from IR?

lemme break it down for you. while you spent the 80s shut off in the trop's daycare facility praying that tracey gold's parents also had a video poker problem, the rest of wall street's future was undergoing a revolution in botanical genocide. i know it's hard to imagine in a world where all investment research comes from mifid compliant adam jonas periscope videos, but legit humanoids used to literally tote around stacks of giant floppy disk-looking compendia that encoded the secrets of the corporate universe in a computable relation known as base 26. aspiring gekkos would pick up a telephone (this like if alexa wasn't your slightly smarter best friend but instead just a thing in your house like a toaster) and ask these companies for information about their business and they would ship out a sentry like napoleon sending out recon posthaste.

seriously, yes, an investor kit is just an annual report or two, perhaps a proxy, and if you're lucky or ask nicely some more kid-friendly type material like a lookbook or company brochures.
