Brunswick’s work in Financial Services

We work with our clients on a range of issues relating to the EU political, policy and regulatory landscape in financial services. We work with many of the world’s largest financial services companies, across a range of sectors including banking, insurance, market infrastructure, asset management and payments.

Brunswick’s global Financial Institutions Group comprises more than 60 advisors with a wealth of expertise across the sector, its issues, audiences and perceptions. Our team draws on its background in media, capital markets, politics, law, polling, academia and in-house public affairs and communications to advise our clients on strategies that build and protect their reputation.
