Fargo joins Fincom Alliance, a new European independent agency network for financial-sector communications
Fincom Alliance brings together leading agencies from the DACH region, UK, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, working collaboratively to help clients roll out their communication strategies in core European markets.
Together, this ‘constellation’ of agencies focuses on strategic consulting, media relations, digital communication, content creation, reputation management and crisis communications. The network provides services to a wide range of clients from across the financial industry including banks, asset managers and FinTechs, among others.
While many other agency networks are designed mainly as referral platforms, Fincom Alliance’s approach is very different, based around sharing the same high standards and maintaining frequent contact among all partners. The network agencies constantly exchange information and ideas on the latest communications trends and developments in the financial services space, in their respective markets, to ensure clients benefit from the latest thinking.
Alongside Fargo, Fincom Alliance includes TE Communications (DACH), Liminal (UK), Mymediarelation (Italy), ALL Comunicação (Portugal) and Comma (Spain). The network members share the same philosophy based on close collaboration, an entrepreneurial mindset and delivering high-quality strategic advice.
“Of course, there are large international networks in the market already,” explains Thomas Egger, founder and Executive Chairman of TE Communications, and initiator of the project. “But what sets us apart is our specific focus on the financial sector, built on many years of specialist experience. All partner agencies have in-depth market knowledge and excellent media contacts. And because we are exclusively owner-managed we can guarantee personal advice and service at all times.”
“Our clients are confronted with both increasingly complex communications issues and a growing internationalisation of their markets, which are gradually extending to encompass all Europe,” explains Emmanuel Delarue, founder of the FARGO Agency. This twofold transformation requires that we provide the most comprehensive and integrated solutions possible by joining forces with other agencies who share our entrepreneurial ethos, the vision we have of our profession and our client-centred culture.”
