Laser-Focused

Spotlight on Growth

Seismic regulatory change is creating unprecedented opportunities for emergent firms and funds to engage with prospects, leads, clients and investors.  In an industry long dominated by the largest firms with deep pockets and well-known brands, the playing field is leveling for the innovative and nimble.  We’ll communicate your strengths, personality and unique offerings across diverse media while ensuring you stay compliant under new rules.

Intrinsic to our DNA is a passion for helping emerging, small and medium-sized firms and funds grow revenues and AUM.  Where others may aim for niches, we see and steer for the gaps.  The largest funds garner over 85% of new AUM and traditional asset managers more than 99%. Our mission is to change the imbalance by embedding clients onto institutional radars and forging new pathways to growth.

Benefit from a comprehensive range of marketing and communications services including planning, identity, media relations, collateral development, web and social media content, advertising, event planning and much more.  Additionally, our affiliate firms can help you with fund distribution, consulting, recruiting, training and more.

Industry forecast: Uncertain

Marketing will make a difference

Historically, financial firms and investment funds benefited through barriers to entry created by dominant brands fueled by massive marketing budgets.  But now the post-2008 regulatory tsunami has radically altered the competitive landscape.  Regulations such as Dodd-Frank, the Volcker Rule and JOBS ACT are turning the field upside down.   Funding and liquidity pools are shifting towards the innovative and nimble while the electronification of asset classes is creating a tremendous opportunity.

The odds are certainly still stacked.  The majority of capital is still allocated to the largest funds and asset management firms.  One in ten funds will close their doors this year, and an equal number will appear.  Less than 10% of funds are even considered candidates for institutional funding.  For financial firms, escalating technology costs, competitive pricing and pressures of both fragmentation and consolidation are compressing margins.

With so many entrants and existing competitors vying for attention, each with their own story and unique value proposition, the difference between success and failure can be as simple as better marketing and communications.

With so many entrants and existing competitors vying for attention, each with their own story and unique value, the difference between success and failure is in many cases better marketing and communications.  Also, having targeted expertise at your disposal is a vital front-line hedge to protect brand and business during times of increased scrutiny and crisis.

We deliver a complete array of exceptional financial marketing and communications services that keep you several steps ahead of the competition, but also give you peace of mind by doing the critical things that take up executive time that other agencies cannot do.  These include understanding the competitive landscape, being adept compliance under new rules, developing content about topics such as electronic trading, technology, alternative investments and  other areas important to building your business.

And most importantly, we provide our experience and knowledge to tell your story and deliver your unique voice to prospects, clients and investors in a market awash with noise.  We know  how to navigate the broad, fast-changing and increasingly complex array of channels and also help find new opportunities across the entire Americas region you may not have even dreamed.
