Private investment marketing and branding examples
Developing a private investment marketing strategy means having a firm foundation by developing your strategy, positioning and identity first.
Thereafter, we identify the collateral you require and how best to connect with your audience. These include:
The visual elements are the tip of the iceberg of a successful brand. We collaborate with you to understand your company aspirations, your competitors, your client, and where you are ideally positioned in your marketplace. We'll do this process with your investment portfolio companies too.
Brand & identity
You may be rebranding your investment company. Or launching a new fund. Or maybe you've invested in a new portfolio company, which needs help. Our brand team will research, define, strategise and design your visual identity and brand based on your unique needs, to give you your best solution.
Website, Online marketing, SEO, PPC, SEM, Social Media … it's a lot to work through!
We’ll advise you on which routes will have the most impact, whilst providing the best value for money. Our team can also manage the website content updates and LinkedIn company pages for you.
Reports & brochures
Professional brochures can't easily be produced in-house. They need to look good, be accurate and match your brand.
We work with investment marketing teams from multi-national hedge funds, through to small family offices to create reports and brochures for financial and investor reports.
Investor relations messaging
Investor relations relies on effective communication between your private investment company, portfolio companies and investors. It integrates financial data, communication, marketing and compliance. But how do you make these look good and get them out on time? We design your investor relations material for the best presentation to showcase your results.
Pitch decks and roadshows
Raising funds is challenging. But half the battle is fought when you have professional, editable, high-impact pitch decks.
It can be a simple meeting or an international roadshow, but you need the right material to generate excitement and interest with your investors.

Other private investment marketing and design services our agency provides
We've been designing brand solutions for the private investment sector for over a decade.
Our key ethos in creating brands is to have consistency. But that's hard to achieve when you split your brand between an internal team and external service providers. It leads to inconsistency, which doesn't build a successful brand.
We solve this by being an outsourced marketing design and communications team. Through our retainer system, you have access to brand strategists, writers, designers and project managers to elevate your brand.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about Private Investment Marketing.
Here are some questions we are frequently asked. If you have any questions you'd like answered, please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll answer them!
Private investment marketing is the action or process whereby a private investment company promotes their product or service. The goal is to generate new business and brand awareness.
It includes advertising, selling and market research. It's based on marketing and brand strategy.
Private equity branding is creating a strong brand image to differentiate your company in the marketplace.
It starts with Brand Strategy which defines where you are positioned, your purpose and your target audience. Thereafter it's about creating a strong brand and creating brand awareness.
Historically private investment firms would rely on word-of-mouth and their proprietary network referrals for new business.
But in a crowded marketplace, it's important now to stand out, so investment companies need to start with a brand strategy first, and then market through their channels.
An example of private investment marketing would be a LinkedIn page which has a communication strategy and a strong brand.
Private investment is investing for a return. If you choose a branding agency that doesn't understand your industry and doesn't have experience, then you'll be their "training wheels".
By choosing a specialist in the investment sector, you're choosing a lower-risk investment into your brand, with a higher return.
A digital marketing campaign involves selling the products or services of your private investment firm online.
Online marketing can be done in a number of ways. Examples of digital marketing include PPC (Pay-per-Click), SEM (Search Engine Marketing) or SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
The DIY approach to online marketing can reduce your chances of success, so it's important to hire a Digital Marketing expert.

One of our biggest compliments is when clients say that we’re “reliable”. It means we’re trusted partners.
We’re an intentionally small and predominantly senior team. Small means we work closely with you – you have the same team working on your account at all times. Senior means we’ve done our time in the trenches, so we won’t be 'learning on the job' with you. We can advise, consult and implement your marketing requirements!
