Our experienced financial communications practitioners offer Board and C-suite level counsel and expertise in three core areas:


Capital Markets


Strategic multi-stakeholder communications planning and execution for transactions and special situations, including mergers and acquisitions, shareholder activism, bankruptcies and restructurings, CEO transitions, and other Board or C-suite level issues.


Institutional Financial Services


Reputation building and communications programs for institutional financial services clients, including traditional asset managers, private equity firms, venture capital firms, hedge funds and other institutional investors.


ESG Advisory


Devising and executing environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies, working closely with Edelman’s global ESG advisory practice.


Edelman Smithfield in Canada combines this focused capital markets expertise with Edelman’s highly complementary specialties – including public affairs, digital, paid media, research, employee experience, and crisis and reputation risk management – to help publicly-listed and privately-owned companies solve their most critical business challenges.

As part of Edelman’s global financial communications offering, we provide local Canadian industry knowledge with access to Edelman’s 60+ offices around the world to deliver seamless support for cross-border and international mandates.
