Financial Communications

Edelman Amsterdam provides specialist support for capital markets and financial services communications to a range of clients based in the Netherlands.  As part of Edelman’s global financial communications and investor relations offering, we apply our expertise in financial markets to support our clients’ engagement with stakeholders on the issues that matter to them.

What We Do

Capital Markets

TRANSACTIONS, FUNDRAISING, RESTRUCTURING, FINANCIAL CALENDAR

Our capital markets practice acts for both publicly-listed and privately-owned companies – offering strategic counsel on crisis, governance, litigation, financial calendar, executive positioning as well as day-to-day media advisory and investor relations. We also work for some of the world’s largest private equity funds and sovereign wealth funds.

Thanks to our global reach, we frequently advise on large cross-border transactions and fundraisings as well as domestic deals. Edelman Amsterdam has an established track record in handling complex, sensitive situations where there are multiple stakeholders to consider.

Where specific areas of expertise are required, we will build a client team that draws upon specialties from within the broader Edelman practices – such as creative concepting, digital campaigning, health communications or monitoring capabilities.

Financial Services

CORPORATE POSITIONING, THOUGHT LEADERSHIP, IP CREATION, MEDIA STRATEGY, REPUTATION MANAGEMENT

Our financial services practice finds intelligent ways to cut through the noise in a crowded media environment.

We have experience handling communications in the asset management industry through a multitude of scenarios – including M&A, scheme buyouts and liability management exercises. We also work with consumer finance companies, insurers, FinTech’s and professional services firms.

Our approach relies on creating and executing content that resonates through all forms of media, including editorial, broadcast, and online channels, bringing fresh insights and perspectives on key issues. Operating with Edelman’s global network, we can manage projects seamlessly across borders.

ESG Consultancy

AUDIT, STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT, DISCLOSURE OPTIMISATION, DEAL ADVISORY

A company’s ability to manage environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) is widely viewed by investors as a proxy for prudent risk management as it increasingly impacts consumer decisions. A company’s ESG strategy must not only address the most material ESG risks but also support its business objectives, driving long-term, sustainable performance that fuels growth. Edelman has two decades experience in measuring companies’ trust and credibility on ESG through our flagship Trust Barometer.

Using our proprietary analytical methodology, we measure clients’ ESG performance against their peers, pinpointing the material risks and drivers of trust, value, and impact related to ESG issues; we then devise and execute strategies to address them.

We also provide pre-transaction ESG due diligence and post transaction ESG integration counsel to clients.
