Who’d be a PR adviser to firms on the AIM market?
Well lots of flaks with good sense and a bunch more soon, is my inkling.
If you click here you will see the January 2019 AIM PR tables from the good folk at Adviser Rankings (to whom: thanking you.)
A quick take:
It has been a very good quarter for Newgate Communications after Redleaf PR was integrated. Newgate jumped to 3rd place by total number of AIM listed clients and they also took 1st place by the number of Financials and Consumer Services clients, and 2nd by Technology client numbers.
But we’ll let you argue about the ins and outs. The bigger point is that these companies — the future growth engines of the UK economy we hope — have never been in more need of proper flak help.
Fewer brokers are covering them, which means fewer fund managers are inclined to buy the shares (see our press release of the day for more on the same theme.)
Fewer journalists are employed to take a close look at smaller firms. Without support from flaks willing to earn not much now in the hope of much more later, many of these companies just won’t make it.
Amazon was a start up once. Over to you.
