Aura Financial

Our services relate only to the material issues facing our clients

We provide specialist communications counsel on issues which are material to the reputations of listed companies and other organisations. These can be one-off projects focused on a specific issue or audience. We also devise and manage complex programmes to build credibility amongst many stakeholder groups.

Continuing obligations for public companies

The Listing Rules and Companies Act requirements for companies are both a significant burden and an opportunity for our clients. We aim to simplify the process where possible and focus on improving the quality and credibility of what companies produce. Investors, analysts and media increasingly require a clear and concise view of progress which fits an ongoing narrative and integrates with company strategy. Our team works at Board level and with in-house communicators to satisfy ever changing regulations and demonstrate value creation in a compelling way.
