Taylor Rafferty, a leading independent cross-border investor relations firm, has joined forces with the financial and corporate communications adviser, Cardew Group, in London, they claim to offer clients seamless capital markets advice and service from London and New York. Both have been active in aviation related markets.
Anthony Cardew commented: "Two principal capital markets continue to dominate the financial world: New York and London remain the twin hubs for major transactions, flotations and fund-raisings. Communication within both markets and with their shared investment communities has, however, grown steadily more complicated. It is now essential for every major company to have an institutional investment profile in both markets. Taylor Rafferty and Cardew Group are working together to achieve that objective for their clients."
"As the capital markets have become more global, the ways that the City and Wall Street conduct investor relations and financial communications have remained different in fundamental ways," said Brian Rafferty.
"IR and communication approaches in the UK and Europe do not necessarily work as well on this side of the Atlantic, and vice versa. With this relationship, and our expertise, we can provide clients with insight into Best Practice, in their home and cross-border markets, and with advice on how to most effectively achieve capital markets goals in both regions."
The integrated services will be led by Brian Rafferty, who is based in New York and has extensive experience in cross-border institutional investor relations, and Anthony Cardew, based in London, a leading figure in communication within the global financial community. Brian and Anthony will be supported by integrated teams from both their companies.
