Dukas Linden Public Relations Named “Best Communications & PR Firm” by Pageant Media’s Fund Intelligence
Marketing Communications and Brand-Building Activity for Asset Management Firms Continues at Rapid Pace
NEW YORK; February 25 – Dukas Linden Public Relations (DLPR) has been named the best communications and PR firm of the year by Fund Intelligence, a highly-regarded research and information provider to the asset management industry. Fund Intelligence is part of Pageant Media, which also owns HFM, one of the industry’s most respected alternative asset management media and information platforms.
DLPR, a leading financial communications agency, represents a variety of retail and institutional asset managers, spanning dozens of different strategies. Its clients include large international retail and institutional managers, as well as emerging and mid-sized mutual funds, ETF sponsors, private equity firms, hedge funds, private credit funds and SPAC sponsors.
“This award recognizes the outstanding work of our very talented team of senior-level practitioners despite the extremely difficult circumstances created by the pandemic,” said Richard Dukas, CEO and Chairman of DLPR. “While asset managers have generally increased their marketing activities over the past five years, the work-from-home environment has forced managers to increase their commitment to brand-building and seek alternative ways to communicate with investors, prospects and other key audiences. Managers, whether they’re targeting retail or institutional investors, have concluded that implementing an ongoing, strategic communications program no longer is a nice-to-have, but rather a must-have.”
DLPR builds and manages its clients’ reputations by creating a unique set of messages that enables firms to establish a unified voice across all mediums. The agency communicates its clients’ key differentiators and narratives through branded content, proactive media relations, remote conference appearances, social media, website design and marketing collateral.
DLPR further advises clients on how to position themselves against competitors as well as track and monitor their public images, especially online and through social media. It works seamlessly with third party design and development firms as well as the with clients’ in-house marketing, sales & distribution teams and placement agents.
DLPR is consistently ranked among the ten largest independently owned financial PR agencies by O’Dwyer’s, a leading industry trade publisher.
