Financial Services

Marino has designed and executed strategic communications programs in support of commercial banks, hedge funds, financial advisers, mortgage brokers, direct lenders, investors and investment banking firms.

Members of our team have worked in the financial services sector and have educational backgrounds in finance.  We have technical expertise; significant experience with, and continual exposure to, a variety of deals; and the ability to speak the language of finance. As a result, when  pitching stories and interacting with journalists, we are particularly well equipped to highlight the transactions – as well as the financial products, services and market dynamics – which distinguish our financial clients.

We understand the turbulent and rapidly evolving environment – the implementation of an unprecedented and highly complex regulatory framework and increased governmental, media, and popular scrutiny – in which financial services operations must operate post-credit crisis. We stand ready to provide cogent counsel not just to those financial firms seeking a larger public profile but to those seeking a more favorable or discrete profile.

Marino maintains working relationships with a wide number of financial editors and producers. These relationships help us deliver effective and strategic media relations programs for our financial services accounts.
