FINANCIAL AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

In an ever-changing environment, where companies across the sector are facing increased uncertainty, heightened regulatory scrutiny, ESG challenges, growing competition, and are undergoing technological innovation, we can help to create positive change through transformational communications.


Our Financial and Professional Services Practice understands the key issues and themes affecting our clients, and uses creative and engaging insights to develop thoughtful communications campaigns. 

Our UK-based team of 25 consultants has exceptional experience devising and implementing impactful campaigns, having advised start-ups and challengers to large global firms across wealth and asset management, life and pensions, private equity, insurance, alternative finance, banking and payments, fintech, accountancy and law, both across the UK and internationally.

Our team, which includes former heads of communication, former journalists, regulatory specialists, research, and digital specialists, understands how to differentiate businesses in crowded markets through corporate positioning, content creation, reputational management, and implementation of comprehensive communications strategies. We also support clients in developing compelling multi-channel content through our insights and digital capabilities.

As ESG becomes a focal point for businesses, we are able to help businesses define, articulate and communicate their environmental and social purpose through our dedicated ‘Purpose and ESG’ team.

We understand what journalists are looking for, through our global reach and longstanding relationships with key media outlets, including editorial, online and broadcast channels. This insight ensures that stories, analyses and opinions are impactful and land in the publications that matter most to clients and their audiences. Each client’s intellectual capital is showcased to compelling effect across stakeholder communications and through insight-led, multi-channel programmes.

We apply rigorous strategic thinking and respond to challenges cogently and incisively, with marketing and communications campaigns that generate a decisive ROI. Our advice is aligned with our clients’ corporate and business strategies, helping them achieve a distinctive position, while enhancing and protecting their reputation and maximising their value.

We can work seamlessly across our global network, offering an insight-led, fully integrated communications experience.
