Joins International Financial Communications Group (IFCG) as Founding Member
NEW YORK, July 9, 2018 – U.S. public relations firm DAI Partners has joined forces with other financial services public relations specialists in the UK and Australia to create a global financial communications network, International Financial Communications Group (IFCG).
IFCG initially brings together DAI Partners in New York and Los Angeles, Pritchitt Partners in Sydney and Steele Knopp Associates in London to provide international support to their financial services, fintech and market infrastructure clients. Pritchitt Partners originated the concept of forming a global network, did the initial research and made the first contacts with other agencies.
Pritchitt Partners director and partner Leeanne Bland said: “As we are increasingly advising clients offering international services and operations, we need to be able to add value by having resources in place through other communication consultancies in other jurisdictions.
“We therefore looked for specialist financial services consultancies similar to Pritchitt Partners who have the same operating philosophy backed with local knowledge.
“In DAI Partners and Steele Knopp Associates we will be working with agencies that share our standards of specialist service delivery, including a high level of principal involvement, using only senior staff for client interface and advice, and maintaining special relationships within the financial services industry.
“We have already benefited from exchanging ideas that add to our own knowledge and techniques and will ultimately benefit our clients.”
Ms Bland said that the three consultancies are currently involved in seeking similar specialist organizations in other financial centers to join IFCG.
“We are already in discussions with Asia-based agencies with a similar service proposition to the three founding members. Consultancies in cities and countries that will further strengthen the network to the benefit of clients will also be considered,” Ms Bland said.
“DAI Partners is very pleased to be a founding member of this exciting new venture. It will expand the services we can provide to our clients and allow us to collaborate with new ones looking for support in the United States,” added DAI Founding Partner Angela Dailey.
