FTI Consulting (US/UK)

Once one of the best-known brands in financial communications, Financial Dynamics - or FD as it was subsequently known - was fully absorbed into parent group FTI Consulting in 2011, becoming that company's strategic communications division. The parent group provides a range of corporate consulting services including corporate restructuring, litigation support and management consultancy. The strategic communications division is one of the world's foremost specialists in financial and corporate communications. Key strengths include investor relations and financial PR, M&A, public affairs, IPO consultancy and crisis and issues management. There are offices in 14 countries, including all the world's leading business centres. Steven Gunby is group CEO, with Edward Reilly as CEO of FTI Consulting Strategic Communications. FTI reported total revenues of $1.78bn in 2015, but strategic communications is its smallest division, contributing revenues of $190m. Financial Dynamics was originally founded in London in 1986 by Tony Knox, previously CEO of Addison Communications. It was acquired by Lighthouse Group in 1999, which was in turn acquired by marketing group Cordiant in the early 2000s before being bought back by management. It was sold to FTI in 2006.
