Intelligent solutions

Every family has different communication needs. Our communications services are designed to suit your individual requirements.


Reputation risk monitoring

We watch print media, social media, blogs, public records, leaks, and everywhere else, both offline and online, for references that could pose a risk – or opportunity – to our clients and their reputations.


Family office website creation

We build, design and launch family office websites for private individuals and families, ensuring that information about them online is accurate, up-to-date and representative.


Family business PR & communications

We advise family businesses — and the families behind them — on all aspects of their communications, helping maintain relationships with journalists, write and distribute corporate announcements, manage harmful and challenging stories, monitor the media, and announce positive news.


Why do successful individuals need effective communication?

Private clients are exposed to critical communications risks on a daily basis. There is more content online than ever before and a single unhelpful, inaccurate story can quickly spread globally, damaging an individual's reputation, their businesses and investments.

Nearly 9 in 10 executives rate managing reputation risk as more important than other strategic risks.
Individuals, companies, banks, charities and others organisations are taking reputational risk more seriously.
7 in 10 of the public think very positively or positively of self-made ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families.
The battle for public, stakeholder and government opinion is winnable if private clients follow an appropriate, evidence-led strategy.

Case studies & reports

  • The case for family websites

    Without a website, families are at risk

    If business partners, employees or the public cannot find information about a family on their own websites, they will find it elsewhere. And that other source, perhaps a newspaper or Wikipedia, may be biased or simply out-of-date.
