Hedge Fund Practice At Citigate Dewe Rogerson Reaches 20 Clients

May 22 2017 | 5:07pm ET

The global hedge fund practice of corporate communications consultancy Citigate Dewe Rogerson has reportedly added 20 new clients since it launched less than a year ago, FINalternatives has learned.

Led by former AIMA deputy CEO Christen Thomson, the unit covers a wide range of strategies, including equity long/short, credit, quant, event-driven, activist, distressed, global macro, FX, emerging markets, biotech, disruptive tech and SRI. Unsurprisingly, it is concentrated on funds in London, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore.

During his six years with AIMA, Thomson worked closely with many of the world’s biggest hedge funds and many of the world’s biggest investors in hedge funds, as well as with the leading journalists covering the industry globally.  

“The rapid growth of our hedge fund practice shows that hedge fund firms globally are increasingly prioritizing reputation management to support their capital-raising,” Thomson said. “It is a challenging environment in which to raise money and firms are responding by thinking strategically about how to build their profile for their target investor audiences.”

Citigate launched its hedge fund practice last September in response to trends in institutionalization, regulation, capital raising and trading that suggested hedge funds should consider a more global approach to communications.

The company as a whole was founded in 1987 and operates across all major industrial sectors, providing media relations, investor relations, crisis communications, research, public policy, litigation support, creative consumer campaigns and digital expertise for clients worldwide.
