WHO WE ARE
GFD Finanzkommunikation is one of Germany's leading financial communications consulting firms. We offer our clients the full range of financial communications services. Whether it be traditional public relations, investor relations, crisis communications, corporate publishing or digital communications, we are problem-solvers across all channels of communication.
Formed in 1995, GFD Finanzkommunikation is independently owned and operated. Our team of four partners and nearly 20-strong staff serve our clients from our offices in Frankfurt and Munich.
Effective financial communications is predicated on an extensive network covering all of the relevant target groups: the media, influencers, bloggers, capital markets experts and professional associations. Most of our team can look back on many years of experience working as financial journalists, for investors or as corporate communications managers. GFD works closely with such industry associations as the Bundesverband Alternative Investments (BAI), Bundesverband Investment und Asset Management (BVI), Deutscher Investor Relations Kreis (DIRK) and the European Finance Forum (eff).
GFD also organises Hedgework, a monthly networking event for the alternative investment scene in Frankfurt, and the Women in Investor Relations (WIR) network.
Built over decades, GFD's longstanding network ensures that our clients' communications target Germany's leading media outlets – an ideal foundation for effective and efficient public relations work. We provide our clients with an extensive network for the analogue and digital worlds.
International asset managers, banks, financial service providers and listed companies alike rely on our proven expertise and our extensive insight into the capital markets, both from the investor's and from the issuer's perspective.
HOW WE WORK
Capably. One of our key competitive advantages is our in-depth insight into the capital markets. We always place ourselves on an equal footing with our clients, and they appreciate the added value of our longstanding experience in communications. Our employees have extensive professional backgrounds in the fields of financial journalism, investor relations, public relations, consulting and social media. By ensuring an optimal mix of various skillsets, we make sure that our clients can benefit from the breadth of experience and knowledge our employees have to offer.
Solutions-oriented. Effective communication requires first and foremost the ability to listen and identify problems. Because it is only possible to develop effective solutions if you can identify your client's problems before they become outwardly apparent. We're open to promising new ideas and avenues. GFD Finanzkommunikation and its interdisciplinary team of experts boast a wealth of knowledge that can be transformed into bespoke solutions. Success only comes to those who are solutions-oriented.
One-stop shop. The needs of our more than 50 clients are diverse and require exceptional creativity and flexibility. There's often little time to fine-tune communications and react to the increasingly rapid changes affecting the financial markets and the global business community.
We combine our expertise in traditional financial communications and the digital world to offer you an integrated, all-in-one solution. We begin by analysing perceptions and activities before defining key topics that underpin the communications strategy and the story we want to tell. Next, we develop strategies and tactics, and at the end of the process, we conduct a performance review. GFD is your one-stop shop for financial communications across all channels and media outlets.
You can't communicate effectively without an extensive network at your fingertips. We established Hedgework in 2004. Hedgework is series of regular events in the heart of Frankfurt where players from the alternative investment scene can exchange ideas. It's an ideal opportunity for anyone and everyone interested in alternative investments to attend lectures given by the industry's top experts, to stay abreast of the latest developments and, above all, to network.
GFD is above all one thing:
Your network for the analogue and digital worlds.
Because communication demands creativity
