Our integrated advisory approach: From transaction to transformation
As one of the largest independently-run communications consulting services in Germany, we are partner of choice for mission-critical cases and complex communication issues. We cover the entire value-chain from transaction to integration: We handle complex opinion building processes regarding the capital market, the political arena, the regulatory environment, public support and competitive issues. In view of internal communication we manage complex post-mergers and strategic alignment processes.
Since 2016, we are the exclusive German member of AMO, the worldwide leading partnership in the sector of strategy and finance communication. Through collaboration with our partner consultancies we can offer our clients efficient one-stop consulting services in corporate, capital market and political communication in all relevant financial and political centres around the globe.
Our workforce is comprised of 70 employees, a large portion of which are senior level and have profound industry knowledge and experience as heads of communication at leading international corporations. We operate as a high-end boutique with an integrated advisory approach.
Today, investment decisions depend more and more on the social orientation of companies and on the aim to reduce reputation risks. This is mainly due to growing complexity regarding the political landscape and increasing stakeholder demands for transparency and sustainability. CEOs, CFOs and chairmen receive rising public attention and are the focus of an often critical public. Communication is a key factor – especially since the influence of reputation will grow even further within the next few years according to a recent DAA Trend Study.
For this reason, our integrated advisory strategy not only meets capital market needs, but also takes socio-political issues, complex communicative interdependencies and various stakeholder demands into account.
