If your forte is challenging, complex special situations work and you have an equal passion for communications and the investment sector this could be the firm for you.

Founded to address the communications needs, specific to the alternative investments world, this consultancy provides the specialist understanding and expertise required, to promote and defend clients' interests in a world where investment firms are under greater scrutiny than ever.
