RWC Partners is the latest addition to Montfort’s rapidly growing roster of clients. Montfort achieved 50% growth in 2020 and this momentum has continued with a strong start to 2021 for the financial services team and Montfort overall.
Montfort Communications has been appointed as strategic communications adviser by RWC Partners.
The Montfort team, led by Founding Partner Gay Collins and including Claire Lewis, Shireen Farhana and Miles McKechnie, will work closely with RWC’s CEO and senior team to enhance the firm’s reputation and deliver greater awareness of its differentiating characteristics. The experienced Montfort team will provide a combination of strategic counsel as well as implementing PR campaigns.
RWC is a specialist, independent investment manager established in 2000 with circa £24.4 billion (as at 31 March 2021) under management. The organisation focuses on attracting and building strong investment teams who have clear and disciplined investment processes and who believe in the benefits of active management. RWC further believes in ensuring that these teams have the resources and autonomy that enable them to focus on the long-term returns for its clients. This entrepreneurial approach is underpinned by the organisation being majority owned by the people who work at RWC.
Gay Collins, Founding Partner at Montfort Communications, said: “RWC is a highly ambitious asset manager and we are excited to play a role in its continued growth and expansion, working with Dan Mannix and the senior management team to elevate RWC’s public image to reflect their growth, strong performance and strategic intent.”
Dan Mannix, Chief Executive Officer at RWC Partners, added: “The team at Montfort has been working with Temple Bar, the value focused investment trust we have managed since November 2020. We have been so impressed with the results they have delivered, their enthusiasm and their creative communication ideas that we decided to appoint them to the entire RWC brief. This new partnership will help to reinforce our position in the industry as a specialist firm offering attractive long-term investment strategies.”
