Financial Services

Expert strategic communications advice for investment managers, consumer credit providers, subscription services and payments companies.


Unprecedented technological development and rapidly shifting consumer behaviour is fundamentally changing the way the financial services industry operates, and policy and regulation is constantly evolving to keep up.

We understand that communications in financial services needs to reflect new dynamics and has to relay nuanced messaging to a variety of stakeholders at once, including regulators, consumers and investors.

GK has unparalleled experience with the investor community, having provided due diligence on over 250 deals, many in the financial services space.

We also understand how some financial products can be at the intersection between vulnerable consumer and regulation, and the associated risks to your brand that can pose. We help organisations assess and communicate their governance, turning a potential risk into a strength.

GK’s financial team can help you unpick evolving policy and regulation, developing strategic communications programmes that help you achieve your commercial objectives.

Our consultants have extensive experience working for clients across the financial services sector, from consumer credit to international and domestic payment businesses to private equity.
