Flint helps position investors and portfolio companies with politicians, regulators and other stakeholders.
Flint advises clients on how to position their organisations in the eyes of key external stakeholders. We do this for investors, helping them to communicate the positive forces for growth, innovation and change, that they and their portfolio companies generate.
Market positioning is about establishing a profile for a firm within an industry and with key audiences so that it becomes a trusted voice and respected driver of change. Market positioning complements policy advocacy and stakeholder engagement.
We map key stakeholders and advise on how to engage them. We ensure that clients present practical and compelling recommendations to policy makers and other decision makers.
We help clients achieve change in their sector, from influencing their trade association to gaining consensus on new areas of public policy concern.
Policy makers are inclined to talk to organisations that have set out clear and thoughtful analysis and recommendations about the issues facing their sector. We can provide analysis and recommendations, and can advise on their communication.
We can help firms avoid a tick box approach to ESG. We can help firms go beyond merely complying with legislation or reporting requirements, by demonstrating a more pro-active approach based on emerging key issues for their sector and their stakeholders.
A late change to an incoming prudential regime resulted in a client’s international operations being brought in scope, meaning the client would be required to hold significant additional capital. The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
