Phoenix Financial PR is a specialist boutique media relations consultancy and represents companies predominantly in the fields of asset management, wealth management and private banking. Phoenix enables clients to tap high quality expertise, free of the trappings and overheads typically associated with London consultancies, and was established in 2005.
13 years on, we have an impressive and varied list of clients, and draw upon our deeply experienced team and extensive network to provide them with the right blend of expertise for their individual needs. Our approach is agile, targeted and proven – as demonstrated by the length and depth of the relationships we enjoy with our clients and the media that matter to them.
Working with our clients as partners, we build relationships based on mutual respect, and enjoy long client tenure. Our close relationships with the media serving the broader investment community, built over many years, have helped to deliver outstanding media results over the longer term.
Our focus is on building awareness of companies, their leading spokespersons, products and services – and on the management of corporate reputation.
Our proposition centres on the delivery of senior strategic communications counsel, creative thinking and exacting writing standards.
We enjoy close relationships, built over many years, with the media serving the asset management, wealth management, discretionary fund management and private banking communities; family offices; the institutional and pension fund communities; strategic partners; networks; industry platforms; trusted advisers and others….. as well as many of the leading ‘go to’ commentators.
