We provide strategic communications counsel, investor relations support, and tailored communications advice and execution on capital markets transactions and special situations to financial sponsors and other financial services organizations.

With offices across the U.S. and in all major markets globally, our team offers the acumen and industry knowledge of a specialist financial communications boutique that combined with Edelman's global scale and ability allows our team to address important stakeholder audiences for clients around the world.

Our mission is to empower clients to build trust and credibility with the investor community and other key constituents.


Our expertise spans three core areas:

  1. We advise financial and capital markets participants on their communications and reputation management, with a focus on alternative asset managers – private equity, venture capital, hedge funds – traditional asset managers, pension funds, and blockchain and cryptocurrency organizations.
  2. We design and deliver multistakeholder communications programs concerning transactions and special situations, including M&As, shareholder activism defense, IPOs, bankruptcies and restructurings, CEO transitions, and other board or c-suite level issues.
  3. We provide investor relations support as an outsourced IR partner to publicly listed companies in connection with all investor-focused activities.

Additionally, Edelman has a bench of senior specialists with deep expertise in ESG, healthcare, and financial policy and regulation.


Our financial communications specialists in the United States operate from offices in New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Outside the U.S., we have additional financial communications specialists at Edelman’s offices in London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Dubai, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo.

Our global network enables us to deliver localized expertise and seamless support for cross-border and international mandates.
