A long relationship helping Societe Generale grow its presence in the UK
Lansons started working with Societe Generale in 2005, when we were appointed to support the Global Investment Services division, comprising SG Hambros, SGSS and SGAM. Since then we have helped SG Hambros communicate with high net worth investors and financial advisers based in the UK, building their brand as trusted experts in wealth planning, investment and banking. Latterly we have been working with them on the integration of Kleinwort Benson since the acquisition and building the new brand, SG Kleinwort Hambros.
For the Securities Services (SGSS) businesses, we provide advice on narrative development, overall positioning and implement an active media programme. Work includes media coaching, arranging journalist meetings, writing opinion columns and supporting communication campaigns and spokespeople at the key events such as the annual SIBOS conference, Fund Forum and network management conferences.
And, until it was set up as Amundi, we helped SG Asset Management build its business in the UK.
Recently we have extended our mandate to add SG’s Corporate & Investment Banking (CIB) business. For SGCIB, Lansons works with the Global Markets and Global Finance businesses, creating and promoting thought leadership initiatives, media roundtables and workshops to raise the profile of the SG’s investment banking activities in the UK.
Put together our mandates cover all of SG’s Global Banking and Investor Solutions (GBIS) activities in the UK.
