Financial & Professional Services

The global economy faces many challenges, from regulation to complexity to economic turbulence. And these challenges can erode confidence and credibility in capital markets and the trust of customers and investors – both institutional and retail alike. While financial services companies historically have weathered such storms by their sheer size and political clout, the leaders in the industry – whether politician or practitioner – have recognized that the historical ways of doing business require tremendous concessions and change. We help companies evolve their thinking and positioning in a way that fosters credibility and reputation, for individuals or the brands they represent.

What We Do

Positioning

Whether it’s overall corporate or B2B positioning, a product launch or a consumer message, FleishmanHillard helps companies develop a market position and message that connects with stakeholders.

Media Relations

Staffed by many former journalists from highly regarded outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, CNN, New York Times, Reuters and many others, our experts can help deliver on your goals. Whether you’re an established company looking to reposition or a new company looking to launch or tell a story, our team can help you on a local, national or international level.

Financial Public Affairs

Corporations, associations and nonprofits have public policy goals. Our specialists can help develop grassroots and social media campaigns to engage and influence key consumer constituencies. FleishmanHillard uses research to analyze the political landscape and how it relates to your business objectives and builds relationships with relevant government and non-government audiences and organizations.

Investor Relations

The investor relations (IR) team is composed of experts with knowledge of the capital markets as well as an ability to effectively communicate a company’s investment thesis and results. With clarity and appropriate transparency, we help clients manage the dialogue across the financial reporting calendar and with investors at every stage of engagement.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Before, during and after M&A activity, tell your story to your various stakeholders – investors, policymakers, employees, customers and communities. FleishmanHillard’s global network provides end-to-end transactions communications support, including traditional and online media, scenario planning, tailored messaging, media and presentation training, reaction monitoring, media coverage analysis, and milestone tracking for post-merger marketing.
