Cardew Group and Taylor Rafferty Collaborate on Cross-Border Advisory Services

Mar 07, 2016, 08:00 ET from Taylor Rafferty

NEW YORK and LONDON, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Rafferty, the world's leading independent cross-border investor relations firm, has joined forces with the financial and corporate communications adviser, Cardew Group, in London, to offer clients seamless capital markets advice and service from London and New York.

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.

With over 30 years of experience, Taylor Rafferty provides a fully-integrated spectrum of investor relations and capital markets advisory services including capital markets goal setting, strategic message development, institutional targeting and marketing, financial media programming, and IPO, transaction and special situations support.  Taylor Rafferty has professionals in offices in New York and London.

Cardew Group has been providing London-listed and international clients with strategic and financial communications consultancy services for 25 years. The Group was founded in 1991 and provides investor relations, financial communications and strategic advice.  It has a leading reputation in mergers and acquisitions and has advised on a wide range of other events, including major hostile bids, acquisitions, refinancings, flotations, and crisis management. Cardew Group has offices in London and Johannesburg.

Their combined experience will provide clients with a depth of expertise and knowledge in what will continue to be a volatile international market.
